Who gets to be American?

Thursday, March 7, 2019 5:00 PM

Armory Live Theater on Pier 94
Panel Discussion

How has the American narrative portrayed by cultural institutions fallen short? Examining representations of race and gender through the prism of the American identity, in what ways have institutions, and the art world at large, failed or succeeded in introducing overlooked narratives into art history? This panel aims to address these questions and the methodologies being used to rewrite historical narratives, probing what aspects of the American identity remain unaddressed and overlooked.

Moderator: Charlotte Burns, Writer and Editor, In Other Words, Art Agency Partners
