Online

Closed captioned

Join us for live, interactive tours on Zoom. Student educators design and lead virtual tours featuring several artworks in the Kemper Art Museum collection, showing images of the artworks through screen sharing and answering participant questions.

On February 5, Olivia Mendelson, assistant educator, discusses a selection of works from the Teaching Gallery exhibition The Autonomous Future of Mobility, curated by Constance Vale, assistant professor of architecture in the Sam Fox School. The exhibition examines the car’s legacy over the past century as depicted in art and visual culture, offering a view toward today’s emerging technological developments and exposing our vulnerability in the face of the horsepower and political power that drive mass movement.

The program will include live closed captions.

This hour-long tour is free, but registration is required (link to come).
