Adam Lerner

Director, Denver Museum of Contemporary Art

Adam Lerner is director and chief animator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver). In 2004, he founded The Laboratory of Art and Ideas at Belmar (The Lab) to explore the changing nature of art and museums and, in 2009, The Lab merged with MCA Denver when Lerner took the helm of the museum. According to a recent article in The New York Times, Lerner’s work at MCA Denver is “reshaping what has become a stale model for a contemporary art museum.” He is the author of a book about unauthenticated art forthcoming from Princeton Architectural Press.
