Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory Scheduled to Open February 22

Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory is an immersive exploration into Toni Morrison’s archives that’s set to open February 22 in the Milberg Gallery at Firestone Library.

As visitors move through the exhibition, they will encounter the complexity of Morrison’s intellectual worlds and the very way that she transcends the categories of artist, writer, teacher, or editor. “Rather than offer either a sweeping overview of her career or an in-depth look at her best-known works,” Womack described, “this exhibit follows the route mapped by the collection itself as it illuminates previously unknown aspects of Morrison’s life and practice, and reveals new ways of understanding seemingly familiar texts and events.”

Princeton notes there are plans for the exhibit to go “into the community” and a series of undergrad and graduate courses that feature exhibit related content:

Womack and the curatorial team are working closely with University and community members to amplify “Sites of Memory” through new creative and research projects from visual artists, composers, choreographers, and playwrights, showing how Morrison’s work continues to inspire artists, students, and scholars today. One such collaboration is with McCarter Theatre. The planned project invites up to three multidisciplinary artists to campus for a series of visits to the collection, for artist talks, and for classroom visits. Throughout, they will create new work inspired by Toni Morrison’s dramatic adaptation of her short story “Recitatif,” culminating in a weekend of performances of newly commissioned works.
