Mills College Sponsored Online Event, Mills College Performing Arts Online Event
Presented by We Are The Voices
Join us for a conversation among the artists Renee Cox, Harmonia Rosales, and Karen Seneferu.
Renee Cox draws on what she describes as a Gynocentric aesthetic through photography and photo collage to celebrate Black women's bodies and to critique stereotypical representations of Black women, often using her own body as a central figure.
Harmonia Rosales's stunning portraits place African American women and children in settings and poses that invoke the portraiture of the Italian Renaissance, but are informed by the cosmology of the Orishas, the deities at the center of many African and Afro-diasporic faiths.
Karen Seneferu is a visual artist and the co-founder of the Black Woman Is God exhibition and movement. Working in sculpture, found objects, and mixed media, Karen's Afrifuturistic aesthetic images the intersection of technology, Afrodiasporic traditions, and Black futures.
This conversation will be moderated by Ajuan Mance, a professor of English and Ethnic studies at Mills College and a lifelong artist and writer.
