Museum of the African Diaspora
October 23, 2009
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm, 2nd Floor Salon
People in the African diaspora have been figured in museum displays throughout modern history: these representations have ranged from the classificatory anthropological exhibitions of nineteenth century Europe to colorful works of contemporary black art in New York’s Chelsea galleries. Ultimately, the display of African descendants has had enormous potential to define those populations for a larger public. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship, the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) invites you to a unique mini-symposium to investigate how museums both represent and shape our understanding of the African diaspora. Featuring original research presented by emerging scholars followed by an art and practice roundtable. Moderated by Dr. Brandi Wilkins Catanese, Ph.D.
Admission $10 rsvp – firstname.lastname@example.org
