Wellness Through Events

The Paw Print

Each week the Division of Student Affairs sends out The Paw Print, which will provide you with updates on key areas and events that you can engage in virtually. An archive of each week's announcement will be kept here

Look for the section of this newsletter called Physically Distant, Socially Connected where you will find weekly engagement opportunities to connect to your fellow Wildcats, Chicagoland, and the globe.
 
The division of student affairs is committed to maintaining current connections and establishing new ones as we remain physically apart. Although not in-person, we will continue to offer various programs for the community. You are invited to check your inbox for weekly engagement opportunities, and follow your favorite social media platforms for specific and departmental programs.
 
The Importance of Engaging for Your Wellness

Engaging in stimulating activities outside of the classroom is just as important to support your overall health and wellbeing as attending classes and studying for your exams. Northwestern provides an endless array of engaging events for little or no cost. These opportunities allow for connecting with new people and learning in a way you may not have otherwise.

Every event provides some way to foster an area of your wellbeing whether it’s a movie screening, speaker panel, sporting event, or even Dillo Day! Give yourself the time to enjoy these opportunities. It just may be what sends you on a new path you never could see before.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate.

Beyond Lament and Blasphemy: Jews and Christians Listening to Job in Midwest America

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM, Evanston

Part of the Music Studies Global Distinguished Speakers Series Professor Ruth HaCohen, Hebrew University of Jerusalem  In this talk, Professor Ruth HaCohen discusses the soundtracks of two "Joban" movies whose plots take place in the 1950s and '60s in the American Midwest. The first film, the Coen brothers' A Serious Man (2009), is "Jewish" in the sense that its protagonists are active members of a practicing Jewish community in a Minnesota suburb. The second, Terrence Malick's Tree of Life (2011), is "Christian," as it centers on a family who are members of a Catholic community in Texas. Both movies are autobiographical, as their authors attest. The talk takes as its point of departure the long legacy of the Book of Job's reception in each of the respective religious communities as well as their traditional contrasting approaches to questions of noise and harmony. It seeks to show the critical role played by the sonic dimension of the movies for fathoming their deeper meaning vis à-vis their Joban orientation. This lecture hinges on possible interpretations of Job 38, 7: "When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy," which Malick took as a motto for his movie: Did the stars cum sons of God sing and shout in harmony, or did they produce noise? In theological terms, does the Book of Job, its "lieto fine" notwithstanding, point towards salvation or disillusionment? And to what sort of salvation or disillusionment does it point, when viewed in terms of the movies' retrospective gaze at the America of their childhood time? Taken together, the films, I argue, artistically express significant trends in Jewish and Christian theologies, and, wittingly or unwittingly, write new chapters in each.

Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence.

Virtual Fireside Chat with International Economics Expert Daleep Singh

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, Online

Please join us for a fireside chat with Daleep Singh, Deputy National Security Advisor for international economics and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council. In this capacity, Mr. Singh coordinates the Administration’s policymaking process for a range of issues at the intersection of economic policy and national security, including global growth, supply chain resilience, innovation policy, economic statecraft, digitization, financial stability, anti-corruption and climate finance. As the U.S. Sherpa to the G7 and G20, he also acts as President Biden’s representative in major international fora. As one of the architects of the sanctions the United States implemented on Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, Mr. Singh will discuss what kind of collective actions, including sanctions, have been most effective and what more needs to be done. Further, he will elucidate on the role that the G7 and other multilateral groups can play in addressing this ongoing conflict, and more broadly, how universities can engage with the G7, G20 and other multilateral groups to address global challenges. In conversation with Annelise Riles, Executive Director, Northwestern Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs and Associate Provost for Global Affairs, Northwestern University.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate.

60 Years of Activism for the Public’s Health: Jack Weinberg Battles the Social, Economic, and Environmental Causes of Disease

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Online

Registration required. In this webinar, we will interview Jack Weinberg, an environmental health activist with a 60+ year track record of fighting for the rights of the public. His activism started in the 1960s with civil rights, the Free Speech Movement, Anti-Vietnam War, and union activism. Weinberg’s environmental health activism started in 1977 when he led a coalition of environmentalists, unionists, and community members in Northwest Indiana to halt construction on a nuclear power plant because of the health risks it posed. This was followed by 10 years at Greenpeace and then almost 25 years developing and supporting environmental health interventions in the global public policy space. During those years he helped develop and mentor numerous country-based initiatives and NGO leaders in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the former Soviet States, and the MENA region. Guest: Jack Weinberg Activist Adjunct Faculty in Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago This webinar is co-hosted by the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) at Northwestern University and IPHAM's Center for Education in Health Sciences.

Sami Schalk: The Black Disability Politics of the National Black Women’s Health Project

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM, Online

Dr. Sami Schalk (she/her) is an Associate Professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Schalk’s interdisciplinary research focuses broadly on disability, race, and gender in contemporary American literature and culture, especially speculative fiction and Black literature. Dr. Schalk’s first book Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, and Gender in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction (Duke University Press 2018) argues that Black women writers of speculative fiction reimagine the possibilities and limits of bodyminds, changing the way we read and interpret categories like (dis)ability, race, gender and sexuality within the context of these non-realist texts. She is currently working on a second book project on disability politics in contemporary Black activism, including the Black Panthers and the National Black Women’s Health Project. Sponsored by Gender & Sexuality Studies, The Women's Center, English, and African American Studies.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence.

CARE Dialogue Keynote - Alexis Pauline Gumbs in conversation with Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, Online

Renowned poet, activist, and Queer Black feminist scholar Alexis Pauline Gumbs will be in conversation with disability justice theorist and activist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha on rethinking the forms and possibilities of care and carework. As the pandemic continues alongside the onslaught of state sanctioned violence internationally and locally from war to policing to divestment from public housing, health, and education, the bodily impacts of exhaustion, grief, and mental health issues mount, especially on the bodies of sick and disabled queer Indigenous, Black, and people of color. This conversation is a moment to pause, reflect, and explore modes of worldmaking that allow us to cultivate more liberatory futures. The dialogue will be moderated by Patricia Nguyen, Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at Northwestern. Co-presented by the Northwestern Women's Center, the Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora, and the Kaplan Humanities Institute, the event will be presented virtually via Zoom; registration is required (please click "register" link below). This event will serve as a capstone to the ongoing conversations this year that have been initiated by Northwestern faculty and graduates as part of the Kaplan Humanities Institute's CARE Dialogue, a year-long conversation about care and its possibilities—to capture the urgency of the contemporary moment, and to contribute to the emergent discussions of how we can move through it while better tending to each other and our futures. Made possible in part by the Harris Lecture Fund.

"To America on Foot”: Romanian Jewish Fusgeyers from 1900 in History and Memory"

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, Evanston

"To America on Foot”: Romanian Jewish Fusgeyers from 1900 in History and Memory" Dana Mihailescu, 2021-2022 Edith Kreeger Wolf Distinguished Visiting Professor,  Northwestern University In 1900, during the great wave of Jewish emigration from Eastern Europe, a so-called fusgeyer movement became the most salient characteristic of Jewish emigration from Romania, given the high number of impoverished, alien, persecuted Jews who were on the brink of starvation and who suddenly decided to leave on foot towards the U.S. and Canada. My presentation considers the history and memory of the fusgeyer movement by tracking the 1900 representation of these emigrants in (Jewish/gentile) press articles, brochures, poems, and visual arts as well as the subsequent accounts due to Jewish cultural historians from Romania. I will compare these accounts from Romania with the American representation of the fusgeyer movement over time. I will show how the fusgeyer movement representation in the U.S. has been a conduit upholding transcultural networks of memory work. In this respect, I will consider the 1900-1903 press coverage of emigration on foot in the American Jewish and mainstream press, the 1900 visit to Romania and report of Robert Watchorn -- the U.S. government special agent sent to Romania by the Immigration Department, the 1903 Note of Secretary of State John Hay, M.E. Ravage’s 1917 autobiography An American in the Making, Jacob Finkelstein’s 1942 Yiddish-language “Reminiscences of a Fusgeyer from Romania to America” and Stuart Tower’s 2003 historical novel The Wayfarers.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate. Lead support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bernstein Family Contemporary Art Fund, the Myers Foundations, the Block DEAI Fund, and the Block Board of Advisors.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate. Lead support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bernstein Family Contemporary Art Fund, the Myers Foundations, the Block DEAI Fund, and the Block Board of Advisors.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence.

Symphonic Band

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM, Evanston

Shawn Vondran, conductor  2022 marks the 85th anniversary of Percy Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy, widely considered a cornerstone of the wind band repertoire. The Symphonic Band’s June performance of the work is a celebration of these two factors. The composition is a set of six movements, each developing a folk song Grainger collected on Edison wax cylinders while exploring various regions of England. Viet Cuong’s new work for chamber ensemble was inspired by Pablo Picasso’s 1954 work Bull, a series of ten lithographs. The composer explains, “The first lithograph is a fully formed bull that, over its next two iterations, increases in opacity and detail. Then, over the next eight panels, layers are gradually peeled away to reveal just the essence of the bull.”  Percy Grainger (ed. Fennell), Lincolnshire Posy  Viet Cuong, Bull’s Eye

Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM, Evanston

Victor Yampolsky, conductor  In the final concerts of his 38 years at the Bienen School of Music, Victor Yampolsky conducts Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 9, closing a season reflecting on the composers that shaped his career. Beloved by audiences and conductors alike, Mahler’s Ninth is often interpreted as his farewell to the world, though it may also be heard as a paean to life’s fleeting joys, and a pondering of eternity. Sweeping in scope, the symphony references Beethoven, Strauss, and Mahler’s own music, concluding with a deeply poignant finale.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate. Lead support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bernstein Family Contemporary Art Fund, the Myers Foundations, the Block DEAI Fund, and the Block Board of Advisors. Generous support is contributed by William Spiegel and Lisa Kadin, the Alumnae of Northwestern University, the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, and by Lynne Jacobs. The related publication is co-published by The Block Museum of Art and Princeton University Press and is supported by Furthermore: a program of the J.M.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate. Lead support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bernstein Family Contemporary Art Fund, the Myers Foundations, the Block DEAI Fund, and the Block Board of Advisors. Generous support is contributed by William Spiegel and Lisa Kadin, the Alumnae of Northwestern University, the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, and by Lynne Jacobs. The related publication is co-published by The Block Museum of Art and Princeton University Press and is supported by Furthermore: a program of the J.M.

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence. Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions Selected Resources Group Visits     Exhibition Advisors and Partnerships The themes, content, and format of A Site of Struggle have been developed in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of established and emerging scholars, museum professionals, and Northwestern faculty and graduate students. Participants are connected by their investigations of American art, visual culture, and African Americans’ production and representation within these fields. Advised by leaders across Northwestern and within the Evanston community, The Block has engaged in dialogues with stakeholders that will continue throughout 2021 in order to shape visitor experience and co-develop collaborative programming on issues of racial justice. This work will enrich A Site of Struggle programming and will lay a foundation for our work into the future. List of Exhibition Partners The Block Museum exhibition will tour to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama August 13- November 6, 2022 CREDITS A Site of Struggle is organized by the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and is curated by Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Block Museum of Art, with the assistance of Alisa Swindell, Curatorial Research Associate. Lead support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art. Major support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bernstein Family Contemporary Art Fund, the Myers Foundations, the Block DEAI Fund, and the Block Board of Advisors.

A Site of Struggle: American Art Against Anti-Black Violence

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Evanston

How has art been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence within the United States? Originating at Northwestern's Block Museum of Art  A Site of Struggle explores how artists have engaged with the reality of anti-Black violence and its accompanying challenges of representation in the United States over a 100 + year period. Images of African American suffering and death have constituted an enduring part of the nation’s cultural landscape, and the development of creative counterpoints to these images has been an ongoing concern for American artists. A Site of Struggle takes a new approach to looking at the intersection of race, violence, and art by investigating the varied strategies American artists have used to grapple with anti-Black violence, ranging from representation to abstraction and from literal to metaphorical. The exhibition focuses on works created between the 1890s and 2013—situating contemporary artistic practice within a longer history of American art and visual culture. It foregrounds African Americans as active shapers of visual culture and highlights how art has been used to protest, process, mourn, and memorialize anti-Black violence.
