Linda Harrison and Stephan Jost in Conversation

Thursday July 23, 4 pm

Join Stephan Jost, AGO Michael and Sonja Koerner Director, and CEO, and Linda Harrison, the director of The Newark Museum of Art in conversation on the role of museums.

Linda Harrison is the director and CEO of The Newark Museum of Art, a large, complex, urban museum campus, where she plays a strategic and unifying role for the organization and the city of Newark. Harrison has led the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco since 2013 as CEO and director. Prior to her role at MoAD, she was a business owner in San Francisco and a vice president at Eastman Kodak. A Getty Foundation Executive Leadership Institute Fellow, Harrison is on a variety of nonprofit boards and committees, including the program committee for the American Alliance of Museums.

Stephan Jost became the director of the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2016. Following his appointment, Stephan demonstrated immediate leadership by thoughtfully exploring the AGO’s visitorship, collection and key strengths in order to strategically focus on three mission-aligned areas: art, access and learning. He has overseen the revitalization of several key areas in the Gallery, helped clarify new audience target segments; and launched Look:Forward, a major reinstallation of the AGO’s remarkable Collection.
