Closed captioned

Join us for live, interactive tours on Zoom. Student educators design and lead virtual tours featuring several artworks in the Kemper Art Museum collection and special exhibitions, showing images of the artworks through screen sharing and answering participant questions.

On June 12, Jay Buchanan (PhD student in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences) discusses a selection of works from the exhibition Women’s Work, curated by Lydia McKelvie (AB '22), Alice Nguyen (AB '22), and Hannah Ward (AB '21), the recipients of the 2019 Arthur Greenberg Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship. The exhibition examines the depiction of feminized labor within sociopolitical contexts that have affected women’s economic agency and identity from the late-nineteenth century to today.

The program will include live closed captions in English.
