On May 23, 2013, artist Kim Beck and Lisa Freiman (who was about to leave her position as senior curator and chair of the Department of Contemporary Art at the IMA) sat down for an intimate conversation to discuss contemporary art in Indianapolis and give attendees a behind-the-scenes peek at Kim’s new installation in 100 Acres at the IMA. Kim, a Pittsburgh native, also has work in The Alexander. As expected, the farewell conversation for Lisa, who spent 11 years building up the contemporary art scene at the IMA and in Indianapolis, was a bit emotional. Listen in.
