In this course, we will focus on some of the key figures, moments and issues related to Black diasporic art. This course will offer a critical survey of Black art and theory focusing on pivotal issues such as Black feminisms, creolization, Black Atlantic, Black aesthetics and curating, Black civil rights movements, critical archival practices, settler colonialism, slavery, and globalization. We will examine cultural production by Black people across the globe with a focus on Turtle Island.
