Photography as Object: Creating Legacy Thru Representation

October 13, at 7:00 pm

A Talk by Artist Azikiwe Mohammed

One of the core elements of artist Azikiwe Mohammed’s practice is photography. In this talk for the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Azikiwe will be focusing on photography as document creator, photographs as objects both physical and mental and how telling stories in this space up brackets to the rest of his practice. From traveling around the country on the Greyhound bus shooting, to his traveling free portrait studio, Azikiwe hopes to offer a look at what Black people look like as told by Black people, not to/at Black people, as is too often the case, with footnotes by him. The photographs are the footnotes.

This program is free of charge and will be conducted through Zoom. Registration is required. Please email gtmuseum@qc.cuny.edu to register to receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
