Event description

Description

Guest curator and moderator Ja'nell N. Ajani introduces artist Lina Viktor, whose practice is described as a “merging of photography, performance, and abstract painting,” in conversation with Amy Sall, New School Lecturer and Founding Editor of SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics. Through both their practices, the two will discuss Colonial ethnographic imagery versus the work of contemporary West & Central African portrait photographers, neocolonial systems, and furthering discourse on the power of image making within divergent contexts.

Visually Speaking by Founding Curator Terrence Jennings, spotlights recognized and unrecognized photographers of our time and explore the photography’s influence on art, culture, and the urban landscape.

Watch on livestream.
