Globally Connected: Conversations for the Future: Mapping the Art World after the Pandemic
Angelica Pomar, FIT Art History and Museum Professions senior, and Eva Mayhabal Davis, arts advocator and curator, will discuss the climate of the art world post-pandemic and what it means for Black, Indigeous, people of color, women, and queer individuals working in the arts. They will evaluate how art institutions can better represent these identities in both exhibitions and on the art careers front. Most importantly, they will look at how wider representation in the arts can be the catalyst for social equity and change.
This year's Globally Connected program is a series of 45-minute virtual discussions led by students, faculty, and alumni to advance global education at FIT in our new world with limited mobility. The major themes will be fashion, art, sustainability, racial equity, and life during the pandemic around the world.
