The Fleming Reimagined: Confronting Institutional Racism and Historical Oppression

September 14 - December 10, 2021

This fall at the Fleming Museum of Art, you will see changes that have taken  place  in  the  past  year  as  Fleming  staff  have  begun  to  reckon  with  the  Fleming’s  institutional  and  collections  history  in  a  process  we  call  The  Fleming  Reimagined.  We  make  our  work  visible  here,  as  we  confront  the  problematic  histories  behind  the  collections and galleries and, with  your  input,  rethink  what  we  collect, how  we  display  it, and the words that accompany it.
