The ICA's Program is a Five-Day Powerful Gathering

 - Jul 9, 2018
The Institute of Contemporary Arts boasts a five-day-long inclusive event that is designed to explore the "impossibility of Black women’s claims to womanhood" and confront "the new spaces that are created by a politics of refusal." Appropriately dubbed ‘Fugitive Feminism,’ the program is curated with sociologist Akwugo Emejulu.

Essentially, the inclusive event provides a space for artist, activists and academics that focus their work and research on the notion of contemporary Black feminist politics. The Fugitive Feminism program discusses pressing issues – from Afro-pessimism and the conceptions of freedom to "the politics of Black women’s pleasure in the realms of feminist theory and visual culture." Aiming to generate open conversations across attendees, the ICA’s inclusive event will hopefully motivate answers and solutions, as well as push for equality across the spectrum.
