Event description

Description

Join us for lunch at the Artists' Roundtable, an affinity space for Black artists, curators, and arts administrators to discuss issues related to our specific experience.

This event is part of In the Historical Present, an exhibition in the Anna-Maria & Stephen Kellen Gallery featuring commissioned artworks, artist-led engagements and performances, and works drawn from the New School's art collection and archives in celebration of the university’s Centennial. Black Lunch Table is an ongoing collaboration between artists Jina Valentine and Heather Hart, which intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. Bringing creative practitioners of color to the table, participants engage in critical conversations about issues vital to their communities. Wikipedia edit-a-thons and archival projects gather information and documentation in order to increase visibility of people of color in historically biased cultural and scholarly institutions. Black Lunch Table has been invited to host conversations and events at Market Photo Workshop (Johannesburg, South Africa), The High Line (New York City), Eastern Illinois University (Charleston, Illinois), Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and other venues.
