Our first webinar for The Portrait Series features Dr. Kelli Morgan, critical race theorist, curator, and educator who will examine the need for Critical Race Theory in museums. She will address the systemic mechanisms of anti-Blackness which exist in museums and theorize ways to dismantle this reality. Dr. Morgan works to analyze the past and present so as to positively reconstruct the future. Through this presentation, she provides a deeper understanding of the role of race and racism in society.
Dr. Morgan is a Professor of the Practice and the inaugural Director of Curatorial Studies at Tufts University. A curator, educator, and social justice activist who specializes in American art and visual culture, her scholarly commitment to the investigation of anti-blackness within those fields has demonstrated how traditional art history and museum practice work specifically to uphold white supremacy
Dr. Morgan is a critical race cultural historian who earned her doctorate in Afro-American Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Public History - Museum Studies from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass). Morgan’s work studies and theorizes the ways in which American artists, art objects, art history, and art institutions both challenge and reify the mechanisms of white supremacy in the United States. Morgan specializes in American Art and Visual culture.
This webinar is a part of Museum Hue’s Portrait Series: Conversations Highlighting Responsive Practices and Expansive Narratives Within Arts and Culture. This series incorporates leading artists, cultural figures, and museum professionals. The aim is to normalize knowledge-sharing as an accessible resource for all, promote the social and institutional advancement of Black and people of color, art professionals, and to utilize racial equity pedagogy to analyze the state of our current art milieu so as to reconstruct a more equal one.
We will have closed captioning/live auto-generated transcription for this webinar.
