In September 2020, Larger than Memory, a groundbreaking exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art opened at the Heard Museum in the midst of the global pandemic. Join curator, Erin Joyce in conversation with featured artists Ian Kuali’i (2019 Dubin fellow) and Marie Watt, as they explore the potential roles of artists in exhibition development and how this type of collaboration can challenge the way that museums function. Speakers will also be asked to consider the impact of the pandemic on the exhibition, and whether their practices will shift to be more virtual moving forward.

This lecture is part of this year’s Indian Arts Research Center Speaker Series:

The School for Advanced Research’s Indian Arts Research Center presents a series of conversations exploring efforts to foster collaboration between museums and communities. Over the years, documents like SAR’s Guidelines for Collaboration have focused on person-to-person collaboration after realizing the critical importance of community input and partnerships within the museum field. This series highlights the history that led to this moment and current innovative partnerships, but also explores the potential of virtual and remote collaboration in the midst or wake of a global pandemic. This series celebrates the successes the field has witnessed as museum professionals, community members, and artists have had to pivot and adapt. In this series, we will hear from presenters who can speak to their experiences of the past year to share what they have learned as well as how they envision future community collaboration and participation in an increasingly digitized field.
