History & Theory of Contemporary Art

Marc Mayer is the senior educator of contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco where he focuses on inserting contemporary art programming, performance, and artist projects into the context of historical, ethnically-specific museum. He initiated the Artists Drawing Club in 2013 and curates this on-going program series which invites artists, predominantly local Asian American artists to use the museum as a project platform to draw connections between ideas, art, culture, and time. Previously he has worked at Art21, the New Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art.
