Art History Happy Hour

Thursday, July 9, 2020

6–7 pm

Online

Mix up a cocktail or mocktail (recipe below) and join us for another installment of our Art History Happy Hour series! This edition features two talks on themes in our exhibition Jeffrey Gibson: When Fire Is Applied to a Stone It Cracks. Art historian and cofounder of the Indigenous Kinship Collective Regan de Loggans discusses the activist group's recent direct actions, and how Black and Indigenous communities are organizing in solidarity with one another. Then, artist Jeffrey Gibson joins Jami Powell, Associate Curator of Native American Art at the Hood Museum of Art, for a conversation about his practice, confronting colonial histories in museum collections, the place and meaning of monuments in both the exhibition and the broader public conversation, and the ongoing work of building collective futures.
