Hamza Walker: Black is, Black Ain’t
SCHOOL OF INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTS
Hosted by Interdisciplinary Arts, Hamza Walker will discuss the exhibition Black Is, Black Ain’t that he curated in 2008. His talk will focus on how this exhibition demonstrated a rhetorical shift in the idea of race (‘blackness’) as a curatorial, cultural, and art practice.
