What Does Community Curation Look Like?
Date: Thursday, January 16, 2020 | 6:30–8:30 PM
Location: ONE Archives at the USC Libraries
909 West Adams Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90007
This program is free and open to the public.
Inspired by On Curating‘s current issue, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD FILL A MUSEUM, this town hall is an opportunity to come listen, share and explore questions around how can and could curators, writer, academics, artists, activists and other engage in representing history, HIV and justice. As part of the community conversation we will be thinking about the ongoing epidemic, the impact of the past on the present, and the role that institutions like universities, archives and museums play in crafting narratives of social change over time.
Involved in the event will be:
Ted Kerr, Editor of On Curating and Curator of Metanoia
Ben Cuevas, Artist
Tony Valenzuela, Executive Director of Stories: The AIDS Monument
Dr. Rebecca Cohen, LA County Department of Public Health HIV Division
Felix Tunador, Re-entry Manager at the LA County Department of Health Services
Caitlin McCarthy, Archivist at the LGBT Center NYC
Salonee Bhaman, Yale University, OAF LGBTQ Research Fellow
This program was made possible through a generous grant from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
