TALK: Danielle Dean

Wednesday, March 7, 7pm

Admission: Free ($5 suggested donation)

Artist Danielle Dean delivers a performative lecture on the research and ideas informing her solo exhibition, True Red Ruin. Drawing from a deep well of critical sources—from Foucault’s writings on the panopticon to media theorists Marshall McLuhan, Friedrich Kittler, Bernhard Siegert, and sociologist Simone Browne—Dean explores how the Elmina Castle in Ghana historically functioned as a form of media and cultural technology, structuring oppressive ideologies that enabled the Atlantic slave trade. Such ideologies continue to influence urban geographies and surveillance technologies today. An audience discussion moderated by Ford Curatorial Fellow Robin K. Williams will follow the artist’s talk.
