On the 25th anniversary of the exhibition Into the Heart of Africa - which revealed deep social, political and racial gaps between the institutional perception of what constituted the “museum public” and the actual complexity of Ontario’s and Toronto’s society – the ROM welcomes a reflection on different ways to present and interpret images, ideas, and histories from Africa and its diaspora. This symposium aims to reconfigure the museum as a place of dialogue and discussion that can contribute in affecting or changing our habits of thinking and seeing.
