The Committee on Global Thought is proud to participate in the Uptown People’s Assembly hosted by Columbia University’s Wallach Art Gallery. The event will act as a generative space of listening and sharing as the United States and the world face the two raging pandemics of public health and police violence.

Dr. Vishakha N. Desai, Vice Chair of the CGT, will host a hour-long discussion from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST as part of the day-long event. Dr. Desai will use knowledge acquired as lead of the CGT signature research project “Politics of Visual Arts in a Changing World” to discuss how we should think about art-making and art-presenting during the twin pandemics.
