Artist Lecture at Opalka

Stacey Robinson
Tuesday, March 26, 6:30pm Opalka Gallery

Albany-born Robinson’s multimedia work discusses ideas of “Black utopias” as decolonized spaces of peace by considering Black affluent, self-sustaining communities, Black protest movements and the art that document(ed) them. As part of the collaborative team, “Black Kirby,” with artist John Jennings, he creates graphic novels, gallery exhibitions, and lectures that deconstruct the work of comic book creator Jack Kirby to re-imagine resistance spaces inspired by Black diasporic cultures. After his talk, Robinson will stay and DJ at our Black Trivia night!
