Join us for a panel discussion exploring the ethics and importance of inclusivity in the modern world. Our expert panellists will discuss attempts to include women and people of colour in exhibitions and art institutions (such as universities, museums, galleries and public library collections) and whether this attempt is to revise and overwrite art history and the Western canon, or if it allows us to better reflect and consider the past and present roles of the marginalised within the context of arts institutions. Most importantly, our speakers will discuss the meaning and implications of inclusion, and whether art institutions are meeting the political and social obligations of the public’s demands to emphasise diversity and inclusion.
This event complements a new digital exhibition of women artists, Printed in Time, curated by University of York History of Art students, which is available to view throughout the Festival.
