Seeing and Seeing through Museum Exhibits: Lessons from Cape Town and Washington, D.C.

April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

How do implicit understandings and assumptions about race and ethnicity become embedded in museum exhibitions? How can museums and exhibitions reproduce, challenge, or help transform those understandings and other “rhetorics of value”? Corinne Kratz will use recent exhibitions in Cape Town, South Africa, and Washington, D.C., to consider these questions, examining components such as exhibition content and design, and reviewing particular historical moments that have brought these questions to the fore.
