The Dr. Allen W. Root Distinguished Contemporary Art Lectureship
2 October, Friday, 4:45–5:45 pm 
Jasmine Wahi
, Holly Block Social Justice Curator at the Bronx Museum
Yesomi Umolu, Director and Curator, Logan Center Exhibitions at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago
Moderated by Jessica Hong, Associate Curator of Global Contemporary Art
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. Registration is required. CLICK HERE to register!
