Curatorial Research Bureau

Barbara Stauffacher Solomon in conversation with James Voorhies, CCA Chair of the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, and Vee Moran, publisher of Owl Cave Books, about her two new books Making the Invisible Visible and Read any Good Boots Lately (Owl Cave Books).


Call + Response is an open invitation to Bay Area cultural producers in fields of design, architecture, humanities, civic affairs, urban planning, and more who want to connect with Curatorial Research Bureau to insert their ideas into the public realm for dialogue. The format speaks to a long history of democratic participation, projecting thoughts and ideas in public gatherings where speaking and listening—call and response—are equally valued as essential parts of public discourse.
