Kathleen Bickford Berzock, Associate Director of Curatorial Affairs, Block Museum, specializes in African art. Previously, she curated several innovative exhibits at the Art Institute of Chicago, including Benin-Kings and Rituals: Court Arts from Nigeria (2008), Masterpieces from Central Africa: Selections from the Belgian Royal Museum of Central Africa, Tervuren (1999); and Baule: African Art/Western Eyes (1998). Her co-edited book (with Christa Clark) Representing Africa in American Art Museums: A Century of Collecting and Display (2010) chronicles more than a century of building and presenting collections of African art in the United States.

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
