Art of Justice 3: MOUNTING INEQUITY: Art in the Age of Diversity
An InterActive Presentation/Conversation
The "official" conversation and practices focused on diversity continue to hide the inequities and disparities in the arts field in New York City. The history of this racial and cultural disparity is critical to understand as it continues to subvert the process of dismantling systemic racial and cultural inequity. The Art of Justice 3, will focus on the publication of Susan E. Cahan, MOUNTING FRUSTRATION THE ART MUSEUM IN THE AGE OF BLACK POWER as an introduction to the discussion on how the hierarchy of Western European-centric canon and the economic power of the 1% in the arts field continues to marginalize and under devalue the cultures of the numerical majority and diverse populations of New York City that are generally of color and not part of the Eurocentric aesthetic perspective.
The opportunity to engage in a conversation with institution builders, artists from our diverse communities with varying cultural perspectives will provide a comprehensive tracking of how in the "name of diversity" systemic racial and cultural discrimination continues in the arts. Understanding the ways that structural marginalization continues will engage the audience is articulating and developing methods for dismantling mounting inequity in the arts in the age of diversity.
