The Artist's Voice puts exhibiting artists in conversation with prominent voices from other fields, allowing each to more deeply discuss the scope of the exhibition in relation to broader, cultural concerns. On the occasion of the Studio Museum's exhibition A Constellation, this artist talk invites exhibiting artists Torkwase Dyson and ruby onyinyechi amanze to explore black spatial dynamics, geographic materiality and the ways narrative and biography are constructed and situated within African, diasporic communities. Moderated by Kimberli Gant, Mellon Curatorial Fellow in the Department of Arts of Global Africa at the Newark Museum and PhD candidate at the University of Texas Austin, our panel will forge connections to fields beyond visual art, further unpacking the role abstraction and fiction can play in offsetting the temporal and narrative prescriptions of the everyday.

Seating is first-come, first-served.
