Join Ayana Evans, described as “one part Wonder Woman, one part agent provocateur” (Roberta Fallon, co-founder of Artblog) for a live, virtual discussion with Reginald Jackson, Director of the Center for Japanese Studies at the University of Michigan and scholar of critical race theory’s relationship to gender.

In conjunction with her presentation as part of the Penny Stamps Speaker Series premiering January 22, Ayana Evans will talk with Reginald Jackson about her work, a body of performances that comments on the effort she must put in to be taken seriously as a Black woman – often with humor and impromptu community-creation. They will also discuss issues facing art-makers today: her mid-career shift to performance, and the potential for art to promote self acceptance and wider acceptance of all selves.

Monday, January 25, 5:30-6:30 pm EST
