Critical Conversations Virtual Program
September 2, 2020
In order to foster meaningful change, the Decorative Arts Trust is bringing leaders in the field together to discuss urgent issues facing our collective community and society. Session 1 of this quarterly series addresses how museums are changing and will change their collection and interpretation practices as a response to movements such as Black Lives Matter and other civil rights movements for people of color. Elizabeth Humphrey, Curatorial Assistant and Manager of Student Programs at the Bowdoin College, moderates a panel featuring Alyce Perry Englund, Assistant Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Joanne Hyppolite, Ph.D Curator at the National Museum of African American History and Culture; Nonie Gadsden, Katharine Lane Weems Senior Curator of American Decorative Arts and Sculpture at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Denis Carr Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens. Registration information for this virtual event will be available soon.
