Lecture Series: Tschabalala Self
November 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Painter Tschabalala Self’s work explores the emotional, physical, and psychological impact of the Black female body as icon in contemporary culture, and examines the intersectionality of race, gender, and sexuality. Correcting misconceptions propagated within and projected upon the Black body, Self aims to create a space where they are free of the othering gaze. Her work has been exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, MoMA PS1, and in recent solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and the Frye Museum in Seattle.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
