Roz Perry Memorial Lecture at Philadelphia Museum of Art

The canon of American art often erases the histories of Indigenous peoples of North America. So how do we shift museum and art historical representations? This conversation between Jami Powell of the Hood Museum of Art and Jolene Rickard of Cornell University considers these questions as well as issues of sovereignty and self-determination in North American Indigenous art.

Registration ends at noon the day before the program; a link will be sent to registrants prior to the program.

This program will be recorded; a link to the recording will be shared with registrants a day after the program.

Speakers

Jami Powell is Associate Curator of Native American Art at the Hood Museum of Art and an advisor on the museum’s New Early American Galleries.

Jolene Rickard is Associate Professor in the History of Art and Art Departments at Cornell University.
