Decolonizing the Academic Art Museum: Goals and Strategies
Decolonizing the Academic Art Museum: Goals and Strategies
Tuesday, April 13, 4:00pm-5:30pm

Colleges and universities continue to reckon with injustices in their histories and ongoing discriminatory practices, which are often symbolized by monuments and named buildings on their campuses. Simultaneously, museums of all kinds are being held accountable for exclusionary practices, opaque finances, exploitative labor practices, and colonial histories. Museums that are part of colleges and universities have unique challenges--and opportunities--during this important moment of activism, as people who visit museums and people who work at museums seek anti-racist, equitable, decolonial institutions that pursue social change, rather than uphold an unjust status quo. This panel convenes curators to discuss specific decolonial strategies that academic museums can pursue.

Co-sponsored by the Wellesley College Art Department
