Join us for a talk by Dr. Kelli Morgan, Professor of the Practice and inaugural Director of Curatorial Studies at Tufts University, presented as part of the Black on Black on Black on Black exhibition.

In this lecture, Dr. Kelli Morgan examines the history of art collecting and the art museum by centering both squarely within the dynamics and functionality of European colonization and imperialism. Through this lens, Dr. Morgan demonstrates how and why art museums are currently struggling so badly with diversity, repatriation, restitution, and attempts to create genuine cultures of institutional equity.
