“To Turn Adversity into Advancement”
In this lecture, Dr. Kelli Morgan discusses some specific ways that she’s worked to turn severely adverse conditions into opportunities for advancement for students, colleagues, and the field of African American art and visual culture at large.
Join us at ALMA | LEWIS for a lecture and conversation with Dr. Kelli Morgan, curator and educator.
Dr. Kelli Morgan is the recently appointed Senior Curator and Interim Vice-President of Exhibitions and Programs at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, MI. Over the last decade, her scholarly commitment to the investigation of anti-blackness within American art and visual culture has demonstrated how traditional art history and museum practice work specifically to uphold white supremacy.
Besides her own curatorial experience, she mentors emerging curators and regularly trains staff at various museums to foster best practices in collection management, exhibitions, community engagement, and fundraising. She is a leading and influential voice in furthering museum practice and has previously held curatorial positions at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, the Birmingham Museum of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
