Virtual lecture: ‘When art meets history’
The Henry Sheldon Museum presents a lecture by curator Ric Kasini Kadour on April 13, at 7 p.m., via Zoom. This is the seventh talk in the virtual series “Elephant in the Room: Exploring the Future of Museums” convened by the Stewart-Swift Research Center.
Can museums become 21st century public squares? How do arts organizations allow the public to experience and understand the multiple histories that inform contemporary life? These questions undergird the research of Kadour, who will speak about how artists can use historic sites, collections, and archives to make work that contributes to civic discourse and heal social divisions.
Kadour, 2020-2021 Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Curatorial Fellow, is a cultural worker. His curatorial work includes the Vermont Arts Council, Rokeby Museum, SVAC, 516 ARTS, and art venues in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, and the U.S. His writing has appeared in Hyperallergic, Kolaj Magazine, OEI, Vermont Magazine, Seven Days, and Art New England. He holds a BA in Comparative Religion from the University of Vermont.
