Time & Location
About the Event
Sociologist Stuart Hall’s writing on the ways that meaning is encoded and decoded offers useful insight into the ways that cultural critics often inaccurately interpret work by contemporary artists of color. How have these cultural protocols for decoding Black avant-garde creative production failed? On the occasion of the publication of Blackspace: On the Poetics of an Afrofuture, a book of essays on the ways Black digital media artists have pursued liberation since the 1960s, join artists in conversation with author Anaïs Duplan, artist Deanna Bowen and VLC Fellow Rasheedah Phillips.
Participants: Those registered and Deanna Bowen, artist Anaïs Duplan, writer, author of Blackspace: On the Poetics of an Afrofuture Rasheedah Phillips, 2020-2022 VLC Fellow, artist, attorney, and member of Black Quantum Futurism
