Please join us as Neysa Page-Lieberman, Executive Director of the Department of Exhibitions, Performance and Student Spaces (DEPS) and Chief Curator of the Wabash Arts Corridor at Columbia College Chicago, presents "Dismantling Injustice: Curating and Social Practice."

Curator and academic gallery director Neysa Page-Lieberman will discuss the importance of a curatorial practice based in social, political and community engagement. She will highlight collaborations with risk-taking artists that have had a lasting impact in communities and her efforts to build diversity, inclusivity and accessibility into the foundation of her work. Page-Lieberman will also share her personal experiences of blending art and activism in public art projects which may result in success, failure, or comedy, all equally rewarding experiences.

Special thanks to the Justice & Peace Studies Department for co-sponsoring this event.

In addition to her lecture, Neysa Page-Lieberman will also be available for a smaller, more casual conversation on December 1st at 4:00 in the Luann Dummer Center for Women. A small group of students from Art History and Justice and Peace Studies will facilitate the conversation. Neysa Page-Lieberman has a MA in Art History from Indiana University and this year she made New City Art's list of top-50 curators in Chicago
