This Week

Brendan Fernandes | Visiting Artist Talk
Wed. Oct 16, 5pm
List Art Building, room 120

Brendan Fernandes (b. 1979, Nairobi, Kenya) is an internationally recognized Canadian artist working at the intersection of dance and visual arts. Currently based out of Chicago, Brendan’s projects address issues of race, queer culture, migration, protest and other forms of collective movement. Always looking to create new spaces and new forms of agency, Brendan’s projects take on hybrid forms: part Ballet, part queer dance hall, part political protest…always rooted in collaboration and fostering solidarity. Register for free tickets here.

In their discussion, Zweiman will discuss how she started two design interventions, how the power of storytelling enables change, and how crafts can intersect with politics. Please RSVP here.
