Community Collaboration in Practice: Collections Reviews at the Indian Arts Research Center
With Mark Mitchell (Tesuque Pueblo), Octavius Seowtewa (Zuni Pueblo), Stephanie Riley (Acoma Pueblo), and Jennifer Day.
Since 2008, the IARC has worked in collaboration with representatives from Pueblo communities in an effort to review every piece in the IARC collection. These collection reviews recognize community knowledge as a primary source of information and ensure that collection items are represented as accurately as possible and in an appropriate manner. Join previous participants and facilitators as they discuss the collection review process and the benefits of true collaboration.
This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required.
This discussion is the last of four events in this year’s Indian Arts Research Center Speaker Series.
2022 marks the centennial of the IARC’s collection of Native Southwest art and history. This year’s Speaker Series, One Hundred Years Later: The Indian Arts Research Center and the Role of Collections in the Twenty-First Century, seeks to explore the role of collections, then and now, and the responsibility and accountability of collecting institutions to the communities they serve. Speakers from across the country will discuss museum practices, community collaboration, and the future of collections in the twenty-first century.
