Opening Friday, March 12th, at 12PM
How do artworks talk to us… and to one another? And how can we learn to talk back? Join Northwestern undergraduates in The Block Museum Student Docent Program to consider these questions in a unique lunchtime series. Through half-hour discussion-based presentations, Northwestern docents from interdisciplinary fields of study will consider two works from the museum collection that have something to say to one another (and to us.) This season, the team will share artworks in our current exhibition For One and All: Prints from The Block’s Collection, and our upcoming Fall 2021 exhibition, Who Says, Who Shows, What Counts.
On this date, Ayinoluwa Abegunde (‘22, Chemical Engineering ) & Hyohee Kim (Kim ’22, Learning Sciences and Asian American Studies), will be discussing Untitled (Nomsa Brath with earrings designed by Carolee Prince), ca. 1964, printed 2018 by Kwame Brathwaite (American, born 1938) and Mae, ca. 1985 by Jackie Hetherington (American, 1935–1989).
