How do secular museums contextualize religious and sacred objects? Should museum displays use one religion to contextualize another? Join Canadian contemporary artist Jamelie Hassan for a conversation with Amy Landau, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Islamic and South & Southeast Asian Art, about religious pluralism in the museum. Reception to follow.
Constructing Cultural Contexts is a new lecture series that examines how museums can use their collections to address contemporary issues of race, gender, and religion. Each talk is led by an expert in the field, sometimes in conversation with a Walters curator, and highlights different themes.
Religious Pluralism in the Museum is sponsored by The Boshell Foundation
