Through the spring semester, conceptual artist Natasha Marin worked with a cohort of artists, Terri Nwanma, Jess Xing, Maimouna Cherif, Kay Wesley, Anosacha Peete-Meyers, and Samah Mohamedzein, to collaboratively create an exhibition engaging the questions that shape her project, Black Imagination:

  • What is your origin story?
  • How do you heal yourself?
  • Describe/imagine a world where you are loved, safe, and valued?

Experience the work they created and meet the artists during the exhibition opening. Register here:

Curator of the widely acclaimed Black Imagination: Black Voices on Black Futures, Natasha Marin’s people-centered projects have circled the globe and were recognized by Art Forum, the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and the Washington Post. Marin’s viral web-based project, Reparations, engaged a quarter of a million people worldwide in the practice of “leveraging privilege.” Her community-based projects center and hold sacred a diverse sample of Black voices including LGBTQIA+ youth, incarcerated women, folks with disabilities, unsheltered folks, and children.
