Ecstatic Nudes : Reclaiming, Black Joy, Radical Love & Representation

April 22, 2017
1:40pm  -  1:55pm
Gallery 400 Lecture Room

Ella Cooper approaches the theme of justice from an embodied elated resistance that draws from Black joy, pleasure politics and Afro-futurism to create new representations of the Black female nude. Ella uses her own racialized body as a site of inquiry to develop workshops, photovideo works & community collaborations as an act of reclaiming, locating and re-inserting the Black female body within dominant visual culture and western society.
