The Phillips Collection’s International Forum is rooted in the institution’s aim to contribute to the global conversation through the language of modern art. A joint presentation with the University of Maryland, this year’s afternoon of dialogue will bring together leaders across disciplines to discuss the great implications and meaning of “Artists of Conscience.” The program will include a keynote lecture by artist Sanford Biggers (recipient of the 2017 Rome Prize), a poetry reading by Fatimah Asghar (creator of the web series Brown Girls), as well as one-on-one conversations between the artists and leading scholars from the University of Maryland. Conversations will explore shared perspectives on the increasingly significant role artists are playing in political and social discourse of today.

$12; free for students and members. Includes admission to special exhibition. Reservations recommended: 2480a.blackbaudhosting.com/2480a/tickets?tab=3&txobjid=827e2596-a809-4693-a67d-9cd7fceaa372
