Commons: Michigan OLLIs Collaborate: OLLI UM presents Wish You Were Here: African Art and Restitution
This exhibition opened in August 2021 for viewing, investigating and exploring. It proactively engages with debates about restitution and ethics of museums’ owning African heirlooms collected during the era of colonization. The investigation and research into 11 works of African art in UMMA’s collection is being conducted publicly with visitor access to documents, photographs and correspondence that will help UMMA develop a better understanding of each object’s history while grappling with questions surrounding the legal and ethical ownership of these artworks. Grace VanderVliet Museum Curator for Museum Teaching and Learning, Ozi Uduma Assistant Curator of Global Contemporary Art and Museum Researchers will guide the audience through the planning, installation and anticipated outcomes of the exhibit. SPONSORSHIP: Celebrating The University of Michigan Museum of Art Linda Bennett and Bob Bagramian
