About this Event

Come witness and experience the practices of Black Spatial Relics artists-in-residence, Julie B. Johnson and muthi reed. Encounter the work of these two artists as they discuss and activate the foundations and methodologies of their projects.

“Moving Our Stories: Idle Crimes & Heavy Work,” invites participants to map embodied cultural memories to explore the history of incarceration and convict labor. Centering the historical criminalization of stillness (“idleness”) that has very real implications for black women’s labor today, we reflect on gendered and racial violence, resistance and restoration, and the commodification of our working bodies that helped build the landscapes around us. Together, we move, write, watch, speak, reflect, and create.
