Free, Online Learning for Social Change: African American Museum in Philadelphia Virtual Exhibit: Rendering Justice – Dec 3
Posted by African American Museum in Philadelphia on November 24, 2020
Throughout their careers, visual artist and filmmaker Titus Kaphar and memoirist, poet, and attorney Reginald Dwayne Betts have used their varied mediums to confront the abuses of the criminal justice system. Their Redaction series, originally on display at MoMA, presented more than 30 new prints and a series of public programs that examine the issue of money bail, the condition of the state and federal court system by which those arrested, but unable to afford bail, remain incarcerated even though they have been neither tried nor convicted. Titus Kaphar and Dwayne Betts will discuss their most recent iteration of Redaction which includes portraits of Guild members and features redactions of the Declaration of Independence. A large-scale mural depicting a redaction of the Declaration of Independence will be installed on a wall yet to be determined. Join us for a conversation between Titus Kaphar and Dwayne Bettes about the inspiration behind this piece and the story they wish to bring to light.
Date and Time: December 3, 2020, 5:30-6:30 PM
