Firelei Báez: On Her Work
The Evening Lecture Series is free and open to the public. All Fall 2020 Lectures will be streamed online via Zoom and YouTube Live. With inquiries, please contact Sam Levy at email@example.com.
Firelei Báez (b. 1981, Dominican Republic) casts diasporic histories into an imaginative realm, re-working visual references drawn from the past to explore new possibilities for the future. With a goal to reclaim power, Báez populates historically-loaded representations of space with change-making creatures—whose hybrid forms incorporate folkloric and literary references, textile pattern, plant- life, and wide-ranging emblems of healing and resistance—to present fictional alternative universes.JOIN LECTURE ON ZOOM
