A lecture by visiting curator and writer Negarra A. Kudumu, who will be sharing her research on African art history and African diasporic contemporary art.
Residing at the intersection of contemporary art, curation, and critical theory, Negarra A. Kudumu's practice is situated squarely within the domain of cultural production and consumption. She is ever investigating the ways in which these processes are visually and discursively interpreted, with an expertise in the contemporary art of the African continent and its diaspora, and a special interest in the emerging visual culture of Iran, South Asia, and their respective diasporas. Negarra received her BA from Dartmouth College and her MA from Leiden University. She is Manager of Public Programs at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle and Founder and Owner of Perpetuity Healing Arts.
