Covering Dissent

Join us for an evening with curator René de Guzman in conversation with producer Suhad Babaa, curator Catherine Morris, and journalist Ramzy Baroud.

How do journalists cover a conflict zone or an uprising? How do artists view neutrality when staging encounters for audiences in socially engaged art? How do museum curators navigate the complex issue of authorship when reflecting (not representing) multiple voices of dissent? With more vehicles for expression than ever, and with increased connectivity to spread messages around the world, it may be difficult to comprehend the volume of dissent narratives that are accessible to us in newspapers, in museums, and via our own smartphones and personal devices.

This program discusses and offers tools to navigate conflict, dissent, and controversy from the perspectives of journalists, filmmakers, and curators and their behind-the-scenes insights including questions of best practices in their fields.
