This weekend, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is hosting The Multiplication of Perspectives: The 10th Anniversary of MoMA’s Global Research Initiative, C-MAP (Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives). The event is an extension of research related to art history in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

The weekend’s itinerary includes lectures and panel discussions by Dipesh Chakrabarty, Jumana Manna, Joseph P. Masco, Ann Laura Stoler, Zdenka Badovinac, Omar Berrada, Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz, Mohammad Omar Khalil, Zoran Popović, Kader Attia, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Cécile Fromont, Anooradha Iyer Siddiqi, Natalia Brizuela, Victoria Collis-Buthelezi, Timea Junghaus, Harsha Ram, and Achille Mbembe. In addition, C-MAP Fellow for Central and Eastern Europe and Hyperallergic contributor Meghan Forbes will be introducing a speaker, as well as moderating a panel “interrogating tensions between a global approach and site-specific study to make space for the untranslatable.”

A full schedule of speakers and panels can be found here. The event is free, but RSVP is required, and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

When: Friday, April 26–Sunday, April 28, various times
