What does it mean to “decolonize art?” How do representations of Africa and people of African descent in art and art museums reproduce and reinforce anti-Black racism? How do art, history, and anthropology museums use the past to authorize inequalities in the present? How can we now refuse colonial narratives in these spaces? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Monique Renee Scott, Director of Museum Studies at Bryn Mawr College and a Consulting Scholar for the African Section of the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Moderated by Dr. Tim McCall, Associate Professor of Art History, Villanova University
