About our speakers:

Faheem Majeed blends his unique experience as an artist, nonprofit administrator, and curator to create works that focus on institutional critique and exhibitions that leverage collaboration to engage his immediate, and the broader, community in meaningful dialogue.

Dr. LaCharles Ward’s research spans the areas of Black visual culture as theory and method, art and aesthetic practices, film and media, history and theories of photography, and law. Ward’s book project, Black Forensis: Evidence, Visuality, and the Aesthetics of Black Life, examines the seemingly fixed but mercurial notion of “evidence” as it is brought into relation with anti-Blackness, Black death, and Black life.

Janet Dees, the Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Block Museum, will moderate a conversation between Majeed and Ward following their lectures.
