re:mancipation – Opening Celebration

re:mancipation is a collaborative project with the Chazen Art Museum in Madison, WI, conceptual artist Sanford Biggers, and MASK Consortium, of which ABHM is part. The project will engage with a sculpture in the museum collection, “Emancipation Group,” by American sculptor Thomas Ball, which depicts Abraham Lincoln standing over a kneeling freed man. Using the sculpture as its central focus, re:mancipation will seek to explore, dissect, and better understand racism in America.

The opening celebration starts on February 4th at 5 PM CT in the lobby of the Chazen and is free and open to the public. Performances begin around 5:30 PM and light refreshments and a cash bar are available. Exhibit will open to the public on February 6th through June 25, 2023.

The event is finished.
