VIRTUAL LECTURE: Equity Through Information: The Black Art Library Project
with Asmaa Walton, Independent Curator
This virtual event is free but registration is required
Presented in partnership with PARJE (Public Art for Racial Justice Education)
Independent curator Asmaa Walton talks about her project collecting books on Black artists, a demographic often overlooked in the canon. Walton curates a new Black art history through a living archive of global Black creativity. Her work was recently at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and is currently on view at SPACES gallery in Cleveland. Walton’s talk explores how important ‘good’ information is in today’s climate of fake news and alternative facts. By introducing audience members to a specific community-based art project they will learn the importance of rewriting historical narratives.
