How can we build an ethical practice of collecting socially engaged art? How can those artworks shift institutional practice, and how can museums, with an eye towards stewardship, offer a productive context to consider their evolving meaning? Thinking across works from the Smart Museum of Art’s collection, a discussion-based tour will explore how the works can fuel research, creative inquiry, and when placed into dialogue with art from across time, place, and cultures, reveal the nuanced ways we reckon with our world.
