Marking the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday—when British Army paratroopers opened fire on citizens protesting the imprisonment without trial of suspected Irish nationalists—this In Session panel discussion will look at the entwined histories of the U.S. and Northern Irish Civil Rights Movements. Join us for a conversation discussing the relationship between artmaking and movements for social change. The discussion will be moderated by MASS MoCA senior curator Denise Markonish and will feature artist Glenn Kaino, whose In the Light of a Shadow is on view in MASS MoCA’s Building 5; Brian Dooley, writer of The Black and the Green and contributor to Kaino’s exhibition catalogue; Tony Doherty, chairperson of the Bloody Sunday Trust; and musician Deon Jones who will also perform live in the Hunter Center on January 29.
