Generational Echoes: Privilege, Power and the Transmission of Knowledge


Generational Echoes: Privilege, Power and the Transmission of Knowledge, an exhibition curated by art students at The University of Toledo (UToledo), explores interpretations and representations of knowledge in visual art, as well as the ways societies share and protect what they have learned.

Sixteen UToledo students pursuing degree concentrations in art museum practices and graphic and interactive design conceived and curated Generational Echoes. Students worked with museum staff and university faculty to select 19 works from the Toledo Museum of Art’s collection, including Barber Shop by Jacob Lawrence and Mirror, Mirror by Alison Saar, to feature in the exhibition. The students also created the graphic identity for Generational Echoes and its accompanying catalog.

The experience offered art students an introduction to some of the ways they might practically apply their degree. 

This exhibition is curated and designed by students in the University of Toledo’s Art Museum Practices and Graphic and Interactive Design Concentrations.
