Guest: Peter Nesbett

Join us for an informal conversation with Peter Nesbett, the Executive Director of Washington Project for the Arts.

Peter is an award-winning art historian, curator, and editor. He joined WPA in 2015 and is transitioning the 42-year-old alternative space to a new, artist-driven model. This has involved bringing artists back on the board of directors for the first time in two decades, and having artists curate the exhibitions, performances, screenings, readings, and lectures. Additionally, Nesbett makes exhibitions and performs as one-half of Triple Candie, which ran a series of alternative spaces in Harlem from 2001 to 2010, and now works from a townhouse a few blocks from the Capitol Building. 

This breakfast is Dutch Treat.
