The Body As Black Archive

Thursday, March 18
4PM - 5:30 EDT

The Body As Black Archive features curator, arts administrator and choreographer Rashida Bumbray and interdisciplinary artist Jefferson Pinder in conversation moderated by multihyphenate curator Niama Safia Sandy. Bumbray’s and Pinder’s respective transdisciplinary work often draws on a historical-cum-ancestral Black vernacular deployed as a framework for adjudicating the past, and present while transforming futures to come. The conversation will trace the two artists’ creative practices through the poetics of bodily representation in their performative work and beyond.
