Presented in partnership with the Association of Professional Art Advisors.

Race and Representation in Contemporary Institutions


Michelle Joan Wilkinson (Curator, National Museum of African American History & Culture), Bomi Odufunade (Dash & Rallo Art Advisory), and Lavar Munroe (Artist, Jenkins Johnson Gallery). Moderated by Perri Irmer (President and CEO, The DuSable Museum of African American History).

This panel will trace the importance and necessity of race and representation in contemporary collections from the perspectives of institutions, curators, collectors, and artists. How has the historical lack of acquisitions of works by artists of color impacted the economic, social, and visual currency in contemporary institutions, exhibitions, and collections? What are the next steps to solving these systemic issues?
