This How Art Gives Shape to Cultural Change instructional video also includes:
"Can a museum be a catalyst in a community? Can a museum house artists and allow them to be change agents as communities re-think themselves?" Watch as curator Thelma Golden re-imagines the museum as a think tank and explores the capacity of artists to understand and re-write history. While the speaker expresses a particular focus on on Black artists, a primary theme of her presentation is how art can change the way we think about culture and ourselves.
- Includes close analysis of a selection of artistic pieces by Black artists
- Briefly touches on the Harlem Renaissance
- Presentation conveys much general information and questioning, rather than specific subject matter
