How does multiraciality complicate what we understand about representation and race?

About this event

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

How does multiraciality complicate what we understand about representation and race? Together with our co-hosts from the Smithsonian's Asian Pacific American Center, we will explore this key question in relationship to a c.1929 drawing of Isamu Noguchi and a c.1960 movie poster of Nancy Kwan.

The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants via Eventbrite 12-24 hours in advance of the program. Each participant must register separately. We will only allow participants into the meeting if their names (and email addresses) are on the registration list.

The Portrait Gallery strives to provide programs that are accessible to all visitors. This program will provide auto-captions. For questions, or to request additional accommodations such as an ASL interpreter or live captions, please email jonesve@si.edu at least two weeks in advance of the program.

In order to register and participate in this program, you must be 18 or older, or be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

For general inquires please contact npgeducation@si.edu.
