How do artists, artworks, and museums shape and challenge our understanding of the past? Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art celebrates its 40th anniversary with a year of “thinking about history” through the lens of its permanent collection. A year of events, exhibitions, and conversations reflect on the crucial role that artworks and academic art museum collections can play in multidisciplinary teaching and learning and in our understanding of historical narratives. The exhibition invites visitors to think critically about how artists, artworks, and museums engage with narratives of the past.
