Event Description

As the culmination of a yearlong programming series, Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism presents our 2022 symposium: curative / spaces

Bringing together artists, curators, writers, organizers, and academics, curative / spaces offers a forum for the exploration of the relationships between race, space, and healthcare through the lens of art and design. Panelists will consider the many implications of these intersections while also reflecting upon their significance for communities’ access to resources, meanings about the body, and our understandings and conceptions of healthcare. 

curative / spaces is organized as a call for the imaginative redesign of processes of health injustice and the building of new practices of care together through art’s ability to transform society. 

Keynote speakers: Andrea Chung and Mabel O. Wilson 

Panelists: Linda Black Elk, Michaela Clark, Cecilio M. Cooper, Carolyn Finney, Keren Hammerschlag, Sarah Khan, Daniella Rose King, Riva Lehrer, Sadie Levy Gale, Nate Lewis, Joseph Litts, Elise Mitchell, Luke Naessens, Paige Patchin, Sharrona Pearl, Chimwemwe Phiri, Shelley Angelie Saggar, Ellen Sebastian Chang, and Giulia Smith 


Organizers: Dr. Anna Arabindan-Kesson and Jessica Womack
