Featuring Rebecca Zorach and Romi Crawford, moderated by Joanna L. Jenkins Ph.D.
This dialogue will bring authors and artists together to discuss the urgent concern for the politics of representation and the impact it has had on different generations of muralists. "Positive Images: Talking About Representation from the Wall of Respect to Mural Arts Philadelphia" should have equal relevance for artists seeking to depict communities they hold dear in a positive light, as for historians and critics who are concerned with the larger context for that impulse to create positive representations.
This iteration of Conversations@Moore is presented in partnership between Moore College of Art & Design and Mural Arts Philadelphia. Conversations@Moore is organized by Moore's Graduate Studies program.
