Founders Lecture Series

Each year, a person of notable acclaim visits Pearson College to give a lecture on global issues. 

In April of 2014, Massimiliano Gioni (PC YR 17/1992, Italy), the Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions of the New Museum in New York and curator of the 55th Venice Biennale gave the 2014 lecture. It was a tour-de-force artistic romp from A to Z, including B for beauty, C for Copyright, G for Generosity and M for Mother, Museum and Money.  He has been referred to as the Crown Prince of the Art World by the Wall Street Journal and called the 10th most influential person in the art cosmos by London’s ArtReview magazine.
