T.J. Dedeaux-Norris practice has recently examined the act and art of archiving and estate building and its implications for a queer, Black, womyn artist navigating academia and the artworld. What agency does archiving provide? How is identity stitched together through materiality? If the body and identity are fluid, where are the past, present, and future situated? To explore, Dedeaux-Norris will be joined by two scholars and archivists whose work is centered on the Black, queer experience: Mel Lewis, PhD, Chair, Humanistic Studies at MICA and Associate Professor of Black/Ethnic Studies & Gender/Sexuality Studies at Maryland Institute College of Art, and Kerrie Cotten Williams, Manager of Special Collections at DC Public Library.
A Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day of the event for access.
