Discussion | Heritage of the Future, Not the Past: The Natural History Museum (online)


The Natural History Museum is a traveling pop-up museum that also organizes exhibitions inside museums, motivating them to act not as shrines to a civilization in decline, but as agents of change. Working with artists, activists, Native Nations, scientists, and museum professionals, the museum inquires into what we see, how we see, and what remains excluded. Members of Not An Alternative—a collective of artists, activists, cultural organizers, and critical theorists that initiated The Natural History Museum—ask how new interpretations of cultural and environmental heritage can arise from connecting climate justice and land rights movements to the history of museums and the legacy of colonialism.

Performance | eagles with eyes closed for the sun tunnels: A Musical Art Project


A musical project consisting of Tobias Linklater (Alutiiq/Omaskeko Cree), and Duane Linklater (Omaskeko Cree), which explores the generative experience of watching films together as intergenerational collaborators, as father and son, and as two Indigenous artists. Their methodology of simultaneous watching and playing back to the image with various instrumentations and processes, improvisations, and a careful non-diegetic Indigenous positionality results in complex propositions to the selected films and images and to the audience itself.

Author Reading | You Feel it Just Below the Ribs: A Novel of Dystopian Love (online)


Authors Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson launch of their new novel, a fictional autobiography in an alternate twentieth century that chronicles one woman's unusual life, including the price she pays to survive and the cost her choices hold for the society she is trying to save. Born at the end of the old world, Miriam grows up during The Great Reckoning, a sprawling, decades-long war that nearly decimates humanity and strips her of friends and family. Devastated by grief and loneliness, she emotionally exiles herself, avoiding relationships or allegiances, and throws herself into her work--disengagement that serves her when the war finally ends, and The New Society arises.

Designer, researcher, writer, and educator Michele Washington virtually guides you through the history of the afro, illuminating how this ubiquitous hairstyle has endured over time, from the late 1950s till today. Inspired by the powerful coiffs on display in You Won’t Bleed Me: How Blaxploitation Posters Defined Cool & Delivered Profits, she will discuss how the faro is engrained in this genre of film, how it defined Black beauty and visual culture, and why it should be viewed as more than just a hairstyle. She will also delve into how natural hair spawned a million-dollar Black hair care industry, changing the trajectory of advertising during the ‘60s and ‘70s, and why the afro is still with us today.

Lecture | Monuments Are Ephemeral


"Monuments are impermanent entities that continuously activate public spaces by way of their changing morphologies and meanings."  Such a conceptualization of monuments and monumentality will be the subject of this lecture by art historian and curator Dr. Patricia E. Kim. In this talk, Kim will present examples and evidence that deconstruct the mythologies of permanence as they relate to monuments. First, she will present an overview of the monument landscape of the United States and its territories as demonstrated by Monument Lab’s National Monument Audit. Then, she will discuss examples of ongoing artist-driven, collaborative interventions that redress such mythologized histories and monuments, often by working with notions of the material ephemeralities and temporal transience.

Artist Alex Tatarsky is in residence to create a laboratory for performance research, thinking through the opportunity of a residency as a home—a “residence”—to revisit latent ideas and cultivate unhinged processes. Within the framework of an institution, a context that can often inhibit individual values and experimentation, Tatarsky will test different modes of thinking and making. Research methods will include rage at landlords, trash as divination, and more. Visitors will be invited into the space of Tatarsky’s research. Tatarsky will offer peeks into various works-in-process, careening in-between tight scripted sequences and wildly improvised experiments.
