In Conversation: the Politics of Display

19 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

Why are some objects chosen for display in galleries and museums and others relegated to storage? How do exhibited objects reveal or conceal painful or violent histories? How will galleries and museums continue to be shaped by the many challenges of our time, not least COVID-19?

Join Dr Carmen Levick and curator Angelica Sule for a digital in-conversation piece that explores the ‘politics of display’. Drawing on Dr Levick’s research for her new book Taxonomies of Pain: Politics of Display in Post-Communist Museums and Site Gallery’s reputation as a contemporary art space at the cutting edge of curatorship, this exploratory dialogue considers the wider questions as well as the day to day challenges that emerge from the power dynamics of public exhibition spaces.
