Constructing Cultural Contexts: Museum Displays & Power Dynamics

Where does cultural appropriation appear in museum displays? What can we as cultural workers and visitors do to change these paradigms of representation? Join cultural strategist and educator Keonna Hendrick for a conversation on cultural appropriation and strategies for combating it in institutional settings.

Constructing Cultural Contexts is a lecture series that examines how museums can use their collections to address contemporary issues of race, gender, and religion. Each talk is led by an expert in the field, sometimes in conversation with a Walters curator, and highlights different themes.

Museum Displays and Power Dynamics is held in honor of the Walters’ founding Director of Education, Ted Low.
