Universities, museums, galleries, and markets typically organize collections and art history through European, western understandings of geographic space. This conversation on diasporic aesthetics explores counternarratives and alternative engagements with geography and globality. Artists Sade Alexis and Nicholas D’Ornellas will speak to the aesthetic practices of diaspora, migration, and Caribbean perspective and how art can decolonize the spaces—and imagine the intimacies—between hemispheres and among continents.
When: Monday, January 25, 5:00PM - 6:15PM
Where: Zoom meeting room
Meeting ID: 886 2771 6682
