Online - Obsessing About Race: A Conversation about Collecting Racist Objects

Oct 29 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM, 2020

Join Dr. David Pilgrim, historian and curator of the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University, as he is in conversation with artist Andres Serrano. They will discuss Serrano’s current exhibition, Infamous, now on view at the museum. Infamous features photographs of racist artifacts the artist purchased in 2019.

This will be the first conversation in a series that includes Svetlana Mitcheva of the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), and painter Michael Ray Charles with Dr. Cherise Smith.

We hope this talk provides another opportunity to explore Andres Serrano’s current exhibition Infamous,  now on in the museum through the end of February.
