Per(Sister): Developing a Socially Engaged Art Exhibition in the Shadow of Mass Incarceration  (Public Programs)

Acclaimed curator and museum leader Dr. Monica Ramirez-Montagut, Director of the Newcomb Art Museum at Tulane University, will discuss the Newcomb's exhibition, "Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana." The exhibition emerges out of the Newcomb's partnership with formerly incarcerated women, community organizations, stakeholders, and those directly impacted by the prison system, in order to shine a light on complex social and personal issues identified and expressed by the women themselves.

In her presentation, Dr. Ramirez-Motangut explores the complex exhibition development process and reflects on lessons learned for other institutions seeking to develop socially engaged and ethically responsible exhibition projects.

Respondent comments will be offered by Janie Paul (Arthur F. Thurnau Professor Emerita, School of Art & Design, University of Michigan) who will share insights developed from her work in the Prison Creative Arts Program.
