    theOldWay: Episode 05 Paige Bardolph

    theOldWay: Episode 05 Paige Bardolph

    In this episode, I am joined by Paige Bardolph, who is the Director of the Global Museum at San Francisco State University, where she also teaches graduate courses in Museum Studies. Paige recently worked with graduate students to curate an exhibition on the impacts of climate change on indigenous communities. She was formally an Associate Curator at the Autry Museum of the American West and lead curator of the California Continued exhibit. She has held positions at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the California Academy of Sciences. Paige served as consulting producer and co-producer for multiple KCET projects, including “Tending Nature,” “Tending the Wild,” and “The Art of Basketry” episode on “Artbound.”

    The “Tending Nature,” and “Tending the Wild,” series shines light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California by exploring how they have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, whilst in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life. These series examine how humans are necessary to live in balance with nature and how traditional practices can inspire a new generation of Californians to tend their environment.

    In this conversation Paige and I explore the role of museums and curators in decolonizing and re-curating cultural space.
