The Art Museum in the Age of Black Power
Wednesday, February 22, 2017, 04:30pm - 06:00pm

Dear Students, Friends, and Colleagues,

The seventh annual INTERPRETING AMERICAN HISTORY LECTURE SERIES presents...

Legacies of Liberalism: Rethinking Reform in the 19th and 20th Century
United States

We have lined up several scholars who will share their keen insights and
innovative work to help us confront official and accepted narratives of
social, legal, economic, and artistic reforms in the nineteenth and
twentieth century United States. We hope that you will join us for our
upcoming event.

 

Susan E. Cahan is Associate Dean and Dean of the Arts in Yale College, the
editor of I Remember Heaven: Jim Hodges and Andy Warhol, and the coeditor
of Contemporary Art and Multicultural Education. She has directed programs
at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the
Peter Norton Family Foundation. She has had over twenty years of experience
as a curator and museum professional. In Mounting Frustration: The Art
Museum in the Age of Black Power, Susan E. Cahan investigates the
strategies African American artists and museum professionals employed as
they wrangled over access to and the direction of New York City's elite
museums.


We look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely, the IAH committee,
