Crossing the Bridge: Art as a Vehicle for Social Justice
Wednesday, September 16, 12:30pm
Neuberger Museum of Art Study
The Ghana ThinkTank collective (Christopher Robbins and Maria del Carmen Montoya) will discuss ways in which art can function as a vehicle for social justice. Their own practice calls attention and seeks resolution to issues of troubling cross-cultural power dynamics. Citing examples from their own explorations, particularly between immigrants and anti-immigrant factions on the US/Mexico border, Robbins and Montoya will also make connections to the work of Mexican artist Teresa Margolles.
Tickets: Complimentary to Purchase College students, staff, and faculty, as well as Neuberger Museum of Art Circle Level Members. General Admission: $10.
