Artist Talk & Panel Discussion

  • Statens Museum for Kunst 48 Sølvgade København, 1307 Denmark (map)

On April 1st La Vaughn Belle and Jeannette Ehlers will give an artist talk at SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst detailing the process and inspiration behind their collaboration.

This is followed by a panel discussion featuring La Vaughn Belle, Jeannette Ehlers, Maya Albana, Lesley-Ann Brown and Genevieve Whitaker, moderated by Fulbright scholar Michael K. Wilson.

A particular focus is how commemorative representations can impact the public discourse surrounding Danish colonial history. What do these representations mean for people of African descent living in Denmark? What do they mean to the Virgin Islands? And how can they intervene in the historic, current and future relationship between Denmark and the Virgin Islands?

Entrance is free and everyone is welcome.
