Hockenhull Lecture: Ayana V. Jackson
March 26, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Photographer, artist and activist Ayana V. Jackson will present the Jo Hockenhull Distinguished Lecture, titled “Archival Impulse. Admission is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow in the lobby.
Jackson’s work seeks to crystallize the experience of contemporary Africa and African diasporic societies. She combines honed technical skills with richly laced historical allusions to create hauntingly candid portraits that depict varying constructions of African and African-American identities. She does this through several photographic approaches ranging from reportage and portraiture to performance and studio based practice.
A selection of Jackson’s work will also be exhibited in the CUB Gallery March 16 through April 1. Open daily, the gallery is located on the first floor of the CUB near the southeast entrance.
The 2015 Jo Hockenhull Distinguished Lecture is presented by the Department of Critical Culture, Gender, and Race Studies, with support from the College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Fine Arts, Humanities Planning Group, Dean of Students, Department of Sociology, African American Student Center, Office of Equity and Diversity, Global Campus, Museum of Art, Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures, Office of the Provost, Department of English, Asian American and Pacific Islander Student Center, Multicultural Student Services, and Department of History.
