Art NOW Series: Aruna D’Souza
Killmonger at the Museum: What a Hollywood Blockbuster Can Tell Us About Institutions These Days
Noon, November 1, 2019
University Recital Hall
Free admission, everyone welcome!
Museums around the world have been challenged by protesters in recent years to account for who and what they show and who is footing the bill. While the questions aren’t new, the expectations about how museums function as public entities are, especially in the U.S. Starting with a key scene from Black Panther, this talk will explore the ways institutions are being asked to transform themselves as formerly excluded groups are staking their claims.
Aruna D’Souza writes about modern and contemporary art; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; and how museums shape our views of each other and the world. Her most recent book Whitewalling: Art, Race, and Protest in 3 Acts(Badlands Unlimited) was named one of the best art books of 2018 by the New York Times. Her work appears regularly in 4Columns.org, where she is a member of the editorial advisory board, and has also been published in The Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, Art News, Garage, Bookforum, Momus, Art in America, and Art Practical, among other places. She is currently editing two forthcoming volumes, Making It Modern: A Linda Nochlin Reader, and Lorraine O’Grady: Writing in Space 1973-2018.
Presented by the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association, Women Scholars’ Speaker Series (WSSS), and Faculty of Fine Arts. WSSS is funded by the President’s Office; co-chaired by Dr. Elizabeth Galway and Dr. Louise Barrett.
We wish to acknowledge the following sponsors for their support and collaboration in making Aruna D’Souza’s visit and presentation possible: Canada Council for the Arts, Department of Art, SAAG, SACPA, ULFA’s Gender, Equity and Diversity Committee, WSSS.
