Practices of Transgression: Accessing the creative potential of liminal identities to imagine radical futures @ CMRS

  • University of Southern California

This round table will bring together a transdisciplinary group of artists, writers, and thinkers to explore theoretical strategies that can point us as creative practitioners towards praxis that imagines the unimaginable: a future that centers blackness, the feminine, the queer. We ask, how do we approach mixed-race or trans-racial experiences in critically productive ways through our work? How do the underlying ideologies of creative spaces and institutions founded on white supremacy negatively impact our practices, and how can we most effectively speak back to and destabilize these ideologies? What is our relationship to re/telling history, and how does this lead us to new futures?
