Gibbes Museum of Art, 135 Meeting St., Charleston, SC
Wednesday, May 15, 2019, 6 – 7pm
“The Gibbes Museum of Art will hold a lecture this month to discuss how museum exhibitions, collections and programs play a role in social justice. In 2009, the Gibbes collaborated with artists Juan Logan and Susan Harbage Page to examine the Gibbes collection and its collecting habits in the context of race, class and gender. The provocative installation that resulted was entitled Prop Master and was designed to highlight the role the Gibbes and museums in general play in shaping social norms and reinforcing power structures based on what they choose to collect and exhibit, and what they exclude. This month, ten years later, the Gibbes will hold a discuss to discuss the exhibitions impact on the Gibbes and Charleston.
Panelists include Sara Arnold, Gibbes Museum Director of Curatorial Affairs; Harlan Greene, Head of Special Collections, College of Charleston; Juan Logan, artist; Brenda Tindal, Director of Education and Engagement, International African American Museum; and Stephanie Yuhl, Professor of history, College of the Holy Cross. Adam Parker of the Post & Courier will moderate.
$10 Members and Students/Faculty with valid ID | $15 Non-Members”
