How do artists working today make art that provokes emotion and speaks to collective remembrance and mourning? How have artists worked beyond and even resisted museum boundaries? Join MFA curator Akili Tommasino, Chicago-based artist Kamau Amu Patton, and Babi Oloko, a student at Harvard University to explore some of the ways in which contemporary artists have responded to massive social upheaval.
