Originating at Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art, "A Site of Struggle" explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022.

In conjunction with this exhibition, curators, educators, and scholars will share their reflections in a three-part conversation series on museum practice, engaging communities with care, and exhibiting challenging material related to race, violence, and our shared histories. Below are descriptions of each conversation in the series. Visit our website for more information on program speakers.

Wednesday, April 13 from 6-7:30pm CST

This conversation features reflections on curatorial approaches to collaborating with communities – those within and outside of the museum – and shaping a shared vision around exhibitions engaging with the issue of racial violence.

Wednesday, April 20 from 6-7:30pm CST

This conversation focuses on a case study of the exhibition, "Reckoning with 'The Incident': John Wilson’s Studies for a Lynching Mural." The panelists explore considerations around its presentation, campus and community engagement, and programmatic strategies at three academic art museums located in different regions of the country.

Wednesday, April 27 from 6-7:30pm CST

This conversation focuses on exhibition-making as a form of activism, the presentation of counternarratives, and efforts to incite institutional change.
