VIRTUAL LECTURE: Promise, Witness Remembrance: A Contemporary Response
with Allison Glenn, Senior Curator and Director of Public Art, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
This virtual event is free but registration is required
Presented in partnership with PARJE (Public Art for Racial Justice Education)
Please join us for a conversation with Allison Glenn, Senior Curator and Director of Public Art, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, for a discussion on her celebrated 2021 art exhibition Promise, Witness, Remembrance, developed around Amy Sherald’s portrait of Breonna Taylor, at the Speed Museum in Louisville, KY. In this lecture, Glenn will reflect on the portrait of Taylor and her unique approach to curating this exhibition, and how artists can help us understand larger systemic issues of gun violence and inequity in policing. Audience members will learn how a diverse range of artists addresses memory, hope, and racial justice through their work.
This lecture is part of a series “Arts & Advocacy: Methods to Spark Positive Change Through Art” and is made possible with support from Connecticut Humanities.
