Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs Lisa Dorin joins artist, activist, and scholar Amalia Mesa-Bains in a conversation about "The Library of Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz." This site-specific installation—which Mesa-Bains created for WCMA in 1994—re-imagines the library room of the 17th century Mexican poet, composer, and philosopher. As the museum prepares to restage part of the installation for the upcoming exhibition Sweaty Concepts, this conversation revisits the artwork's past and present, exploring questions of contemporary curatorial practice, site-specificity, and collections.
Join members of WCMA's curatorial team Horace Ballard, Kevin Murphy, and Elizabeth Sandoval in a conversation about their process and approach to the upcoming exhibition Remixing the Hall. This moderated dialogue will explore the curators' collaborative approach to this thematic re-hang of WCMA's global collections.
Join Elissa Watters (MA '18), curator of the upcoming exhibition Art, Sport, and Propaganda: 1972 Munich Olympics, for a close look at a few of the posters included in the exhibition. This program will explore both the official graphic design scheme for the Munich Games and a few of the Olympic art posters commissioned from international artists, including Jacob Lawrence (American, 1917–2000) and Jan Lenica (Polish, 1928–2001). Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the program.
