Open Conversation with Wajahat Ali

Gallery Talk

October 19, 2016, 12:30 pm

In conjunction with People on the Move: Beauty and Struggle in Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series, join Creative Director for Affinis Labs Wajahat Ali in the special exhibition galleries as he facilitates the first #PhillipsConversation in a monthly series this fall. Wajahat Ali's discussion focuses on themes of migration and immigration. 

This series of monthly open conversations serve as a platform for audiences to further engage on larger issues represented in both special exhibitions. Some discussions address existing political and social movements related to themes in the exhibition. Each conversation begins with a “big idea” and follows with questions related to the monthly #PhillipsConversation prompt on the first floor of the museum. Live tweeted by the Phillips (@phillipsmuseum), these in-gallery conversations are facilitated by experts related to migration, discrimination and segregation, and community and identity.
