Wednesday March 22, 2023 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Online via Zoom Free and open to the public
Online via Zoom Wednesday, March 22

Dr. Ariana A. Curtis will discuss ways museums can elevate the everyday, not just the extraordinary, and shine a light on the often hidden and undervalued work women do. Dr. Curtis is dedicated to building inclusive frameworks that disrupt systemic marginalization, misrepresentation, and erasure.

She is the first curator of Latinx Studies at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where she leads research and collections that center Latinidad through an African American lens. She has published in academic and popular outlets and appeared in national media including NPR, LatinoUSA, and The Root. Her TED talk about women and museum representation has over 3 million views. Ariana is a Fulbright scholar, founding member of the Black Latinas Know Collective, and board member of Duke Libraries, the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures, and the Museum Association of the Caribbean. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Cristina Cruz Gonzales, Associate Professor of Art History at Oklahoma State University.
