The Canadian Friends of the Buffalo AKG Art Museum are pleased to invite you to a conversation with Janne Sirén, Buffalo AKG Peggy Pierce Elfvin Director; Shohei Shigematsu, Partner at OMA New York; and Alex Bozikovic, Architecture Critic for The Globe and Mail. The conversation will be moderated by Ismaila Alfa, host of CBC's weekend morning show, Fresh Air, on CBC Listen and CBC Radio. 

Together, Janne and Shohei embarked on a seven-year collaboration that resulted in the new campus of the Buffalo AKG Art Museum, the most significant campus expansion and development project in the institution’s 162-year history. The evening’s conversation will offer unique insights and candid stories about the process and the project. This event will be held at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, Ontario.
