The exhibitionon view through August 15, 2015 at the National Museum of Natural Historyexplores the cultural, political, and professional contributions of Indian immigrants and Indian Americans in shaping U.S. history. For her Curatorial Hub talk, Momaya will discuss crowdsourcing and open calls for submission as cornerstones of her curatorial practice in a staid institution; training community members (some of whom contest exhibition narratives) to be docents; and condemning longstanding orientalism in museum legacy by leading public tours and through interactions with media. This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with BOLLYWOOD in the subject line.
