Why Art Matters with Henry Kim
Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, 2pm
$10 admission (click here for tickets)
Can art really matter amid today’s sharp political polarizations and the oversaturation of images on our screens? Does art still have the power to shape our civil imagination?
Henry Kim, Director and CEO of the Museum, talks about why art matters and how art speaks to the ways in which we belong. From calligraphy to painting and monumental sculpture, we tell stories that bind or exclude us, as nations and communities.
Why Art Matters is the final talk in the 2019 Ismaili Centre, Toronto’s Conversation series, Who Are We, Where Are We Headed? exploring the intersection of citizenship, identity, and religion.
