Event Description

Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium
£15concessions available

Ellen Gallagher’s work deconstructs received truths and weaves together propositional narratives, inhabiting spaces where the future collapses into the past, obsolescence into technology and image into text. These are spaces carved out by the cultural aesthetic of Afrofuturism.

In the context of Gallagher’s work, speakers will explore and complicate readings of Afrofuturism and its influence on contemporary artists’ practices, creating an intricate understanding of the genre and its evolutions. Speakers include Zoe Whitley (Independent Curator and panel co-organiser), Hazel V. Carby (Professor of African American Studies and Director of the Initiative on Race Gender and Globalisation at Yale University), Amna Malik (Lecturer in Art History and Theory at the Slade School of Fine Art,UCL), and Lili Reynaud-Dewar .



Amna Malik is Lecturer in Art History and Theory at the Slade School of Fine Art,UCL.

Hazel V. Carby is the Charles C. and Dorothea S. Dilley Professor of African American Studies, Professor of American Studies, and Director of the Initiative on Race Gender and Globalization at Yale University.

Zoe Whitley is an independent curator and doctoral candidate based in London.

Lili Reynaud-Dewar was born in 1975 in La Rochelle, France, and lives and works in Grenoble. Her relatively epic projects combine performance, video, sculpture and involve her friends, her family and lately, her own body.
