The Catalyst and Preservation of Cultural Institutions
May 27, 2021
Representatives from Chicago-based, culture-specific arts institutions discuss how such institutions are uniquely positioned to take on the role of culture keepers and enable communities of color to find power in their collective identities. Leading the roundtable conversation are Debra Yepa-Pappan, artist and Native Community Engagement Coordinator for the Native American Exhibition Hall at the Field Museum; Cesareo Moreno, Visual Arts Director and Chief Curator at National Museum of Mexican Art; and Carla Stillwell, Executive Director of the Stillwell Institute for Contemporary Black Art. The conversation will be moderated by Pascale Ife Williams. This program is held in conjunction with the current exhibition Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden: Shrouds by Faheem Majeed.
