The Black in the Americas Series presents Maya Quilolo, a Maroon artist and researcher. Currently Quilolo is a visiting scholar at UMBC, doctoral student at UFMG (Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil) and recipient of the CAREC 2022 Prince Claus Mentorship Award for Cultural & Artistic Responses to Environmental Change. Her investigations address and explore the intersections between art, anthropology, and black and indigenous cosmologies through film, photography, drawing, performance, literature, and sculpture.

She will present a four-part workshop series, Beyond the Eyes: Embodied Methodologies into an Environmental Image:

October 16 — Introduction to the series. The use and theory of images in anthropology.
October 17 — The relationship between performance art and the dominant visual regimes and how BIPOC practitioners appropriate it to create their videography.
October 18 — Using images for writing fieldwork and the products that result from that experience.
October 19 — Visual and performative exercise and conclusion.

All events will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. in 105 Performing Arts and Humanities Building.

Admission is free, but please register in advance here.
