Tuesday, March 19 | 3:30-5 p.m. | CMU 203

Join us for a panel discussion about a student-centered project titled “Out of Storage,” led by MSUM Professor Anna Arnar. For this project, MSUM students researched, documented, and wrote about artworks by selected women artists represented in the permanent collection of the Plains Art Museum.

Museum representatives Netha Cloeter and Tasha Kubesh will address their current efforts to curate an exhibition of women artists based on the permanent collection to be installed in June of 2019 as well as the exhibition Wassamoo-Beshizi (Power Lines) that includes multidisciplinary work by 25 Native American women artists curated by Laura Youngbird in collaboration with Joe Williams, Tasha, and Netha.

The panel will take place in CMU 203. Light refreshments will be served.

In addition to highlighting the strengths of the Plains Art Museum collection and its mission of inclusion and diversity, our discussion will raise questions about how institutional and curatorial biases (intentional and non-intentional) have informed the collecting and exhibiting of works by women artists.

Free and open to all.

Co-sponsored by MSUM Women’s Center and the MSUM School of Art.
