Alumni event | Decolonizing the RISD Museum’s collection
Join the Alumni Club of NYC for a virtual presentation by Sarah Ganz Blythe, interim director of the RISD Museum, about decolonizing the museum’s collection. Museums offer potent opportunities to critically confront the legacies of colonialism and the oppressive systems on which they were founded. Hear about how the collection and spaces of the RISD Museum are being activated to confront the past, embrace the complexity and ambiguity of our present, and offer up opportunities for deep learning, collaboration and creativity for the future.
This event is hosted by Matthew Shenoda, associate provost, Social Equity & Inclusion & SEI advisor to the president, the RISD Alumni Club of NYC and the RISD Museum.
Registrants will receive Zoom information within their Eventbrite confirmation email.
