Event description

Description

Through an interdisciplinary practice that is grounded in performance, Helina Metaferia explores the uncertainty that comes with involuntary and voluntary mass migration, particularly as it pertains to black and brown bodies, immigrants, and gentrified communities. Her talk will focus on the physical and emotional implications of such changes, as well as a survey of work from Home | Free, her current solo exhibition at the Museum of African Diasproa (MoAD), which is on view through April 2.

Helina Metaferia received her MFA from Tufts University’s School of the Museum of Fine Art and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. Her solo and group exhibitions include the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, MA), Museum of Modern Art (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), Galeria Labirynt (Lublin, Poland), Grace Exhibition Space (Brooklyn, NY), and Defibrillator Gallery (Chicago, IL). Helina is currently a 2015-2017 AICAD Post-Graduate Teaching Fellow at SFAI.
