11am-4 pm

The Let Down Reflex is a day-long multi-part event that deepens the question of hospitality raised by the exhibition The hold: studies in the contemporary collectionThe Let Down Reflex project curators Amber Berson and Juliana Driever ask participants to draw a blueprint for a cultural scene that includes parents. They invite us to consider how arts and culture can engage disconnected or disinclined groups, and create spaces that are hospitable, spaces that invite broad participation and provide true access.

Berson and Driever propose that, although art galleries and other cultural venues provide creative programs for families to explore art together, they could do more. Re-considering opening reception and event hours, considering logistics for on-site care, providing space for (or simply welcoming) breastfeeding are issues for cultural spaces to consider. Could Saturday afternoon gallery visits become more enticing?
