Rest is Power now online
Shortly before the campus and state mandate to shelter in place, Art History 401 students curated “Rest is Power,” an exhibition about how rest has been historically denied to Black and Brown, Disabled and Queer bodies, at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art. The Manetti Shrem Museum has now made the exhibition accessible online! You can view it here.
Art History 401 student curators were Heidi Herrera, Rita Huang, Abby Robertson, Micaella Sanchez and Alexandra Thoits. AHI 401 was led by Professor Susette Min.
Professor Susette Min has also added a new introduction to show – “Rest in Power, George Floyd” – discussing the exhibition in its context of the pandemic and Black Lives Matter.
