Kiyan Williams: Piecing Myself Back Together After The World Has Ended ~ exhibition curated by Jessica A. Cooley and Ann M. Fox.

Working fluidly across sculpture, video, and performance, Kiyan Williams is attracted to quotidian, unconventional materials and methods that evoke the historical, political, and ecological forces that shape individual and collective bodies. Piecing Myself Back Together After The World Has Ended is a new video in a series of works which furthers the artist’s aesthetic and conceptual exploration of Blackness, ecology, and trans/gressive subjectivity; wherein bodies are in process, oscillate in legibility, and blur the boundaries between self and other forms of sentient life.

Indisposable: Structures of Support After the ADA, Chapter 6 is a Virtual Event to be held on Thursday, September 23 from 6:00 ~ 7:00pm.
