Curatorial Collaborations: Exhibitions for Social Justice

From the event organizer:
Author Elena Gonzales shares highlights from her new book Exhibitions for Social Justice, which examines interesting new curatorial work and best practices – from sharing authority to inspiring action, from building solidarity to forging long-lasting memories.

Gonzales will be joined in conversation with a range of representatives from local museums that work directly with diverse communities to address issues of social change, and that are featured in the publication: Cesareo Moreno, Director of Visual Arts & Chief Curator, National Museum of Mexican Art, Kelly H. Szany, Vice President of Education & Exhibitions, Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, and Jennifer Scott, Director and Chief Curator, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.

The panel will share examples of new and recent work that innovatively addresses challenging social topics around gentrification, citizenship, immigration, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia, racism, anti-Semitism, and incarceration. The panel will also explore with the audience new opportunities for museums to creatively collaborate with communities to address issues of justice.
