Opening Wednesday, September 29th, from 6PM - 8PM
Who Says, Who Shows, What Counts: Thinking about History with The Block’s Collection considers our constantly changing understanding of the past through the lens of artistic practice.
Join exhibition artists Andrea Carlson, Tonika Lewis Johnson, and Chris Pappan for an interdisciplinary conversation on how artists, artworks, and museums shape and challenge what we learn as history, and help us to envision new futures.
Discussion moderated by Rikki Byrd, Block Museum 2020-2021 Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellow. Introductory remarks by Sarah Maza, Jane Long Professor in the Arts and Sciences and Professor of History at Northwestern University, and exhibition curators Essi Rönkkö and Kate Hadley Toftness.
