Join us Monday, November 9, from 6-8 pm for the third conversation in a series of four virtual public programs spotlighting the vibrant third cohort of the Leslie- Lohman Museum’s Artist Fellowship.
Each of the four fellowship events will feature a short artists’ talk by three Fellows, followed by a discussion with a curator, art historian, or writer. Since its inception, the Artist Fellowship, led by director Ela Troyano, has centered queer artists of color from a wide range of cultural experience.
For this event, presenting artists include Arisleyda Dilone, Le'Andra LeSeur and Alison Viana in conversation with Tavia Nyong’o.
Tavia Nyong’o is Professor of African-American Studies, American Studies, and Theatre and Performance Studies at Yale University. His research interests include the ethics & aesthetics of social & cultural analysis. His books include: The Amalgamation Waltz: Race, Performance, and the Ruses of Memory (U Minnesota, 2009), which won the Errol Hill Award for best book in African American theatre and performance studies, and Afro-Fabulations: The Queer Drama of Black Life (NYU Press, 2018)
