Rethinking American Art Through Collaboration
Since the groundbreaking reinstallation of the Native American collection in 2016, The Newark Museum of Art (NMOA) has been actively shifting the boundaries of American art and museum practice. By curating collaboratively with artists, community members, and across our global collections, the Museum is committed to expanding the canon and challenging conventions. Join us to consider the impact of these strategies and to think about the future.
