In Dialogue: Smithsonian Objects and Social Justice



Heighten your civic awareness through conversations about art, history and material culture.

May 13, 2021 - May 14, 2021. Starting: 05:00 PM

Each month, educators from the National Portrait Gallery will partner with colleagues from across the Smithsonian to discuss how historical objects from their respective collections speak to today’s social justice issues. Why is it important to have agency in how we are portrayed  

Together with our co-hosts from the Freer and Sackler, Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art,we will explore this key question about representation in relationship to a 1937 photograph of actress Anna May Wong and an early 21st century photo-performance by Pushpamala N. Registration required
