Indigenous Perspectives: The Gardner Museum

Film Screening and Panel Conversation

Thursday, October 7, 7 - 8:30 pm
Calderwood Hall

Join us for the premiere of a powerful, short film documenting a conversation among Elizabeth Solomon (Massachusett at Ponkapoag), Erin Genia (Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota), and Mar Parrilla (Afrotaíno Borikua), three local Indigenous cultural workers, on historical museum practices, manifestations of settler colonialism, cultural landscapes, and the potential of art in decolonization. 

This film screening and live discussion take place during Free First Thursdays. Museum admission is free but reservations are required for this free, 90-minute featured program. (Program tickets include general museum entry. If you plan to attend the film screening, please reserve your tickets for the performance.) The Museum and Cafe G are open late, and art-making activities are offered in the Studio.

Amplifier Projects at the Gardner highlight change-makers working towards social justice through the arts.
