Posted by: Lucy Lydon
The next in AAMC Foundation's In-Conversation series will be held at the Smithsonian. National Museum of African Art on November 10th. Featuring Christa Clarke, Senior Curator, Arts of Global Africa, Newark Museum and President-Elect, AAMC & AAMC Foundation; Moderator, Eduardo Díaz, Director, Smithsonian Latino Center, Elizabeth Easton, Co-Founder and Director, Center for Curatorial Leadership, E. Carmen Ramos, Curator of Latino art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Kimberly J. Wilson, Deputy Director Human Resources, Volunteers, and Community Service, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the conversation will center around the topic of unintended bias in the museum community. The implications of unintended biases are wide-ranging, from lack of diversity among museum trustees, staff and audiences to exclusionary practices of collecting, display and interpretation. Our panelists will discuss what curators can do to identify and change these bias.
