Site of Struggle:

American Art against Anti-Black Violence


How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States?

Originating at Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art, Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100+ year period. 

You are invited to join us for a visit to the Block Museum at 40 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston, IL 60208. We will be greeted by the exhibit curator, Janet Dees. After a self-guided tour, we will meet again with Janet to consider how the exhibition explores intersections of race, violence, visual culture, and history, and what the arts can bring to a national conversation about racial justice. We can bring up to 25 people.

Contact Linda at linda.a.gerber@gmail.com if you would like to join us.
