Dis/assembly: The Body in Abstraction

In a panel chaired by Nicola Vassell (Founder, Concept NV), artists Derrick Adams, Marcia Kure, and Tschabalala Self discuss strategies of collage and new media abstraction – both online and offline – in visualizing and celebrating blackness. Looking to their respective practices, the dialogue will consider how revisiting modernist and conceptual traditions of collage and dis/assembly make possible new aesthetic forms in an era of viral imaging.
