Housed by Lyons Wier Gallery, the discussion will address how a casual culture of instant gratification — spurred by the hyper-advancement of technology — has affected the distribution and overall consumption of art.

The discussion will be moderated by Quiet Lunch Editor in Chief Akeem K. Duncan.
The panelist include:
