Event Details & Description

Taking the concept of the “pop-up” memorial museum as its point of departure, this panel explores the role of art and art institutions in bearing witness to legacies of historical racial violence through this season’s Teaching Gallery exhibition Truth and Reckonings: The Art of Transformative Racial Justice. How might cultural archives and reparative curatorial practices build understanding of the past towards an ethical commitment to a better future? And how do we address injustice, past and present, within the St. Louis community and beyond?

Join guest curator Geoff Ward, associate professor in the Department of African and African-American Studies in Arts & Sciences; Cheeraz Gormon, storyteller, writer, public speaker, and member of the St. Louis Community Remembrance Project Coalition; Tabari Coleman, Director of Professional Development, Anti-Defamation League; and Sabine Eckmann, William T. Kemper Director and Chief Curator, for a participatory and reflective discussion.

The Museum will remain open between 5 and 5:30 pm for participants to view the exhbition prior to the discussion. Reception provided by Saha Falafel.
