Speaker: Negarra A. Kudumu

Open to all at no cost

Time and Location

The Art & Art History Department is proud to announce our guest speaker for Black History Month, Negarra A. Kudumu. The webinar will take place via Zoom.

Negarra is Curator at the Seattle-based Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) and is also owner and founder of Negarra A. Kudumu | Art + Healing, a consulting agency which "depart[s] from the premise that both art and healing are grounded in making: artists make art works, curators make exhibitions, scholars research and create critical texts; and healers make sustainable integrated solutions that benefit and advance their clients' well-beings at the mind, body, and spirit levels."

"Negarra investigates the ways in which contemporary makers continue to adapt their ancestral knowledge and technologies - consciously and subconsciously - and (re)invigorate generative discourses around art, trauma, healing, liberation, spirituality, and sexuality," (from her LinkedIn profile).

She will be presenting on a group of contemporary Black artists that includes Simone Leigh, who has been selected to represent the U.S. at the next Venice Biennale in 2022 and will be the first Black woman to do so.
