This conversation between artist Deborah Anzinger and lawyer and geographer Danielle Purifoy and curator will explore notions and strategies of the inhospitable—a term borrowed from one of Anzinger’s works in the exhibition Deborah Anzinger: An Unlikely Birth. The discussion will consider these notions and strategies as they intersect with historical struggles for emancipation, decolonization, and self-governance of the land and body throughout the black diaspora. This conversation is moderated by Daniella Rose-King, Whitney Lauder Curatorial Fellow and curator of Deborah Anzinger: An Unlikely Birth.

Programming at ICA has been made possible in part by the Emily and Jerry Spiegel Fund to Support Contemporary Culture and Visual Arts and the Lise Spiegel Wilks and Jeffrey Wilks Family Foundation, and by Hilarie L. & Mitchell Morgan.
