    • Visual Arts

In The Conversation’s first guest-featured Virtual Café, curator Nato Thompson talks riffs on how our biggest emotion - fear - is the modality of the internet, and how most internet chatter takes the form of social media- which has, ultimately, become our political discourse. He also talks his departure from the Philadelphia Contemporary (and nonprofits), and his new post directing the Alternative Art School, and ends with a great anecdote about his turning point towards becoming a curator.
