Kemi Adeyemi

Kemi Adeyemi is Assistant Professor of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies and director of The Black Embodiments Studio at the University of Washington. This talk will draw on her writing and curatorial works that examine the networks of sound, gesture, and affect that give shape to black queer life under neoliberalism.


The Carpenter Center’s bookshop is a collaboration with Motto Books, a bookshop based in Berlin. The bookshop is one of the only places in the Boston-area that carries small press contemporary art books, magazines, and journals, with an emphasis on international publications and limited-edition projects.
