Description

Join us Wednesday, October 21st, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM as Department of Art Assistant Professor Jessica Ingram leads a conversation with New Landscapes featured artist, Dionne Lee.

Dionne Lee works in photography, collage, and video to discuss ideas of power, agency, survival, and racial histories in relation to the American landscape. Lee explores the relationship between Black bodies and the natural landscape as both a place of beauty and a site of intergenerational trauma and violence. Armed with a lexicon of survival techniques, Lee aims to subvert the colonial legacy of property ownership through the acts of reclamation and resistance. This event is free, virtual, and open to the public.
