Mastry and Our Moment: Questioning Western Portrayals of History

Mastry, Kerry James Marshall’s new exhibit at the Met Breuer, explores African American experiences throughout American history while alluding to classical Western themes. Marshall comments on the dominance of Western narratives within art and depicts an artistic engagement with the past. Mykolaj Suchy '19 broadens this discussion, investigating the prevalence of the Western canon within museums and how institutions can counter an exclusionary view of history.
