• On June 12, 2020, the Uptown People’s Assembly brought together activists, artists, and scholars to moderate a 12 hour durational event of art, testimony, and dialogue with a focus on the dual pandemics: the coronavirus and the murder of Black men by police. Video recordings and transcripts for each session are archived here.

  • These interviews with the exhibition curator and participating artists launch a new initiative to present ongong candid conversations with artists, curators, and cultural leaders.

  • While in-person Family Programs are on pause, the Wallach is finding new ways to connect with kids and families. How can we be creative at home? Where are you finding inspiration for your imagination? These questions are the inspiration for a series of activities to help start conversations about life right now.
