Bayeté Ross Smith, who was selected this past fall as Columbia Law School’s inaugural Artist-in-Residence for 2021-2022, has overseen the installation of several mixed- and multi-media works in Jerome Greene Hall. To mark the installation of this exhibition, the community is invited to join a virtual event, entitled “Visualizing Violence: Art Looks at the Law and History of Implicit Bias,” which will be held on Thursday, February 24, 2022, at 6 p.m.

The discussion will examine our society’s relationship with violence, both historically and in contemporary life, through the lenses of identity, history, and visual memory. It will feature an interdisciplinary conversation including Mr. Ross Smith, Professor Jamal Joseph (Columbia School of the Arts), and others. Kendall Thomas, Nash Professor of Law and Director of the Studio for Law and Culture, will serve as moderator.
