ASD Programs

Specially Curated For Art San Diego

Since its inception in 2009, Art San Diego has featured special programs that are informed by the year’s curatorial theme. The programs include site-specific projects, art talks, and panel discussions; a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video, and new media works; and a curated selection of emerging and spotlight artists. These programs provide a dynamic experience for attendees, allowing them to view and interact with works by leading international artists, experience leading museums “outside the museum walls,” and enjoy exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of San Diego.
