Templeton Colloquium in Art History: Race, Museums, Art History
American cultural institutions are an integral part of the broader discussion of racism taking place in our society. Museums powerfully communicate cultural values, including racially based notions of difference. Can the museum be a space of anti-racism, and can the discipline of art history help to achieve that? If so, what are the challenges and concerns? The 2021 Templeton Colloquium focuses on these questions to better understand the relationship between the display of art and racial privilege. Speakers will include Professor Bridget Cooks of UC Irvine, author of Exhibiting Blackness: African Americans and the American Art Museum (2011), and Dr. Susan Mullin Vogel, a curator, filmmaker and expert on African art whose most recent book is El Anatsui: Art and Life (revised and expanded Second Edition, 2020). After brief presentations by each of the speakers, the conversation will be moderated by Michael Yonan, professor of art history and Alan Templeton Endowed Chair in European Art, 1600–1830.

The Templeton Colloquium in Art History series is made possible by the generous support of Alan Templeton (‘82) and organized by the Art History Program in the Department of Art and Art History. Co-sponsored by the Manetti Shrem Museum.
