Event description

Description

In organizing a major exhibition on the history of women’s suffrage, the curator faced several critical problems, including how to create a more inclusive narrative, and how to find appropriate objects that would tell this history. During this lecture, Dr. Lemay will relate how she addressed these issues, and guide members of the audience through the process of curating a major exhibition at the Smithsonian as part of the #BecauseOfHerStory initiative on American women’s history.

Speaker: Kate Clarke Lemay, Historian and Curator, National Portrait Gallery
