Streets Dept Podcast – SN 2, EP 12: Listening and Curation, A Talk with Tyler School of Art’s Robert Blackson

May 23, 2019

**Sponsored Episode**

Very excited to sit down with today’s guest, Robert Blackson!

An Andy Warhol Curatorial Fellow who worked for many years as a curator in the UK, Robert Blackson moved back the U.S. in 2011 to spearhead the Tyler School of Art’s Department of Exhibitions and Public Programs, apart of Temple University.

Now an undeniable force in Philly’s art world working to organize such programs as Symphony for a Broken Orchestra and Funeral for a Home, today we talk with Robert about how his curatorial instincts have led to a series of bold, thought-provoking exhibitions. A mix of ongoing and temporary events and exhibitions created as responses to questions risen by an advisory council of Philadelphians from a range of backgrounds.

This episode is a sponsored episode, and I’m really excited that through Temple University (my Streets Dept Podcast Season 2 sponsor) I was able to connect with today’s guest!
