Join the Conversation

In conjunction with the exhibition Sediment: The Archive as a Fragmentary Base, the Art Museum presents a conversation between Denise Ryner (curator), militant interdisciplinary historian Sónia Vaz Borges, and art historian and curator Gabrielle Moser. Alongside a conversation on the exhibition artworks, the speakers will discuss their respective research on public education, including the decolonial program of the PAIFC (The African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde) and the British Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee's image-archive in the early 20th century. In relation to the exhibition, the panel asks how such archives are configured into imaginary and also sedimentary bases upon which new identities, nations, or diasporas may build and image themselves.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration required.
