Truths and Reckonings: The Art of Transformative Racial Justice—Gallery Tour & Conversation

Exploring the spring 2020 Teaching Gallery exhibition, Truths and Reckonings: The Art of Transformative Racial Justice, this program features a recorded gallery tour followed by a live Q&A with the exhibition curator Geoff Ward, professor of African and African-American Studies in Arts & Sciences. The recording was originally created as part of a training session for the police departments of Washington University and the City of Clayton. With a walk-through of the exhibition, Ward discusses how art and art institutions contribute to transitional justice by confronting histories of racist violence and their legacies today. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the live Q&A immediately following the recorded tour.

This program is free, but registration is required. Register link on the event webpage.
