Black Atlas Round Table: Crating the World: Thursday, February 8th, 4:30-6pm VCAM Object Study / Media Production Classroom 20. Based on the contributions by Ariella Azoulay and Gabrielle Moser for the upcoming publication by artist Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn, Crating the World addresses the colonial legacies of collecting, documenting, and displaying practices in Western museums. Azoulay’s essay discusses the circulation of material culture from colonized countries while focusing on the local labor, shipping, and distribution of material culture as intrinsic to Western self-identification and dismantling the social fabric of the source community. Moser examines the meaning of the wooden crates as vessels for a two-way cultural contamination, as well as for the emergence of civic rights, yet limited, for Indigenous communities in Northern Canada. Quinn (Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs for the Penn Museum in Philadelphia) and Scott (Director of Museum Studies at Bryn Mawr College) examine questions of representing Africa in local institutions and will serve as moderators for the roundtable discussion. Free and open to the public.
