With Gene Nichol (UNC Law) on “Sahmat, Tolerance, and Free Expression”
Free. RSVP requested (see below).

Sahmat has become “a vital platform for contemporary art in India that defends freedom of expression and battles intolerance within the country’s divisive political landscape.” It thus pursues “a mission of resistance against forces that threaten the essentially pluralist and democratic spirit of creative expression in India.” Nichol will explore the underpinnings of Sahmat’s bold charge–abroad and in North Carolina. The Ackland’s Art for Lunch series presents lunchtime talks in the galleries that are designed to add a little bit of art exploration into your busy day, so bring a bag lunch!
