NEA Big Read New Haven: The Racial Imaginary
June 16 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pmFree
When Claudia Rankine was recognized by the MacArthur Foundation in 2016, she used her $625,000 award to build an extraordinary Interdisciplinary Cultural Library to provide a platform for artists and scholars to explore the idea of race. Two curators for The Racial Imaginary Institute—essayist and painter, LeRonn P. Brooks, Ph.D. and renowned poet and lawyer Monica Youn—will lead a discussion of this new model of art curation, collaboration, and its role in lifting voices that are otherwise unheard through galleries and museums.
This lecture is part of the NEA Big Read and the 23rd International Festival of Arts & Ideas, taking place June 9th through 23rd in New Haven, Connecticut.
