In recent years, museums have been publicly confronted with their colonial legacies and exclusionary practices. In this unprecedented era of COVID-19 in tandem with mass protests and upheavals initiated by the #BlackLivesMatter movement for racial equity, social justice, and systemic change, these conversations have come to the fore with even more prominence within and around institutional spaces. This year’s Dr. Allen W. Root Contemporary Art Distinguished Lectureship will focus on different curatorial models and how we can rethink institutional practices for long-term change.
