Join 2022-2023 Anne Ray Intern, Penske McCormack, for a presentation on a project they have been working on while in residence at SAR. Penske will share about their internship experience and answer audience questions.
Curating “Legacies of Care: Diné textiles and the impacts of chemical treatment”
As part of their Anne Ray Internship, Penske curated an online exhibition discussing the legacy of pesticides in museum collections through the lens of chemically treated Diné textiles at the IARC. In this presentation, Penske will share their reflections on curating the exhibition. This will include going more in-depth about several ideas they touched on in their exhibition, including the Eurocentric concepts and ideas surrounding “preservation” in Western museum practices. They will also share important moments in the process of curating the exhibition, what they learned from their experiences, and how this project expanded their understanding of the collection.
*Note: 2022-2023 Anne Ray Intern Wayne Nez Gaussoin (Picuris/Diné/French descent) closed out his internship early to pursue a job opportunity in museum education and will not be presenting.
