Chazen Museum of Art
Madison, WI

To support the finalization and dissemination of the re:mancipation project in print and on film. This multifaceted, multiyear initiative contextualizes an object in Chazen Museum of Art’s collection. Artist Sanford Biggers and MASK Consortium is working with Chazen staff to study and recontextualize Thomas Ball’s troubling sculpture Emancipation Group (1873). The grant supports a catalogue and a film that documents and disseminates the learnings of this collaborative project, and in this way contributes to the expansion of narratives of American art.
