Panel Discussion: 'Truths and Reckonings'

Monday, February 10 | 5:30 PM

Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum
Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis, MO 63112

Taking the concept of the “pop-up” memorial museum as its point of departure, this panel explores the role of art and art institutions in bearing witness to legacies of historical racial violence through this season's Teaching Gallery exhibition Truth and Reckonings: The Art of Transformative Racial Justice. How might cultural archives and reparative curatorial practices build understanding of the past towards an ethical commitment to a better future? And how do we address injustice, past and present, within the St. Louis community and beyond.

The program is free and open to the public but registration is required. Register here >>
