Curating Otherwise explores questions of contemporary curatorial approaches to racializing exhibition practices. Some of these questions include the politics of visibility, inclusivity, and institutional representation, while others trouble the notion of minoritized or marginalizing artistic practices. This panel discussion will focus on curatorial practices that navigate complex identities, histories, institutional limitations, and artistic, curatorial, and art historical conventions in presenting the work of Black, Brown, and Indigenous artists.
