Lunch Roundtable: "Curating a New Canon" Out of Easy Reach


The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present a lunch roundtable "Curating a New Canon" with Allison Glenn, Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Kellie Romany, and Lorelei Stewart in support of the exhibition Out of Easy Reach, guest-curated by Allison Glenn, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The exhibit contains works by twenty-four U.S. based, female-identifying contemporary artists from the Black and Latinx Diasporas. Working across a variety of media, these artists counter conventional accounts of abstraction in art history that have often overlooked the artistic contributions of women of color.  A symposium, “Abstraction as a Strategy of Refusal,” will take place on Thursday, August 23-Friday, August 24, and the opening reception will be held on August 24 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
