Coffee with the Curator

Monday, October 03, 2016
8:00 – 9:15 a.m.
Admission: Free for museum members, $5 for non-members


Cultural Appropriation vs. Cultural Appreciation. What is the difference? Join us for an engaging discussion on a controversial subject regarding culture, free speech, personal expression and political correctness. Many artists have addressed these timely issues challenging Western cultural and historical norms. In their work they call attention to the appropriation,and frequently misappropriation of their icons , images, and traditions.Artists have raised a mirror to society exposing an unequal exchangebetween Western culture and marginalized cultures. One such artist is Wendy Red Star, whose exhibition of powerful works will be on view August 27 through October 30, 2016 at the Triton Museum of Art.

Join Triton Curators Ester Fernandez and Preston Metcalf for Coffee with the Curators as they discuss Wendy Red Star’s exhibition, the broader aspects of cultural appropriation, and the potent power of art as a means of being heard.
