Who gets to tell our history? What stories and voices are lifted up, or left out? How do artists and museums help us envision new futures, reveal dimensions of our present moment, and challenge the past?
In this lunchtime, discussion-based series of gallery talks, Block Museum Student Associates will explore these questions posed by our Fall 2021 exhibition, Who Says, Who Shows, What Counts: Thinking about History with The Block’s Collection.
Block Museum Student Associates are Northwestern undergraduates representing interdisciplinary fields of study from across the University. Among their many roles at the Block, Student Associates engage our broad array of campus and community visitors in dynamic conversations about art and ideas that are relevant to our lives today.
