An Elegy to Rosewood, Panel Discussion

March 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum will host a panel discussion in conjunction with their special exhibition, An Elegy to Rosewood . Moderated by celebrated African American studies scholar, Tameka Bradley Hobbs, this panel will include artists Charlisa Montrope, Rhea Leonard, and Chire Regans. These artists have created artists’ books for the exhibition focusing on histories of racial injustice and the historic erasure of violence against Black bodies. With a focus on women’s perspectives, this conversation will elaborate the role that women have had historically in story-telling and preserving history. This conversation will also explore how each artists’ practice can engender distinct methods of rumination.

Part of FAM’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Exhibition Series, this An Elegy to Rosewood will recognize the women who were critical in preserving Rosewood’s history and highlight female-identifying artists based in Miami. An Elegy to Rosewood comprises historic and contemporary photographs, innovative digital materials, and oral histories. This exhibition will feature historical objects from The Real Rosewood Foundation, many of which will be publicly displayed for the first time. The exhibition runs January 25, 2023 through April 16, 2023.

Registration is suggested, but not required for those attending in person. Those wishing to participate virtual must register to receive the link to the live discussion. This exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum (FAM) at Florida International University.
