This presentation will examine how protests, in their many forms, have been used by black artists and activists to impact museum culture. By examining what has and continues to catalyze protest and by looking at specific historical and contemporary examples of black protests in the arts, this presentation will recognize and deconstruct how protests can support the radical revisualization of blackness in museums and examine how these methods can be a model for activism now.
