DAM Contemporaries celebrates the 10th anniversary of Logan Lectures with four artists who share global perspectives in their interdisciplinary practices.
Having lived between two cultures, the United States and Zimbabwe, Chido Johnson’s work persistently locates cultural spaces identified as other and different in an attempt to transform and negotiate a new sense of self, place, and belonging. It is with this sense of otherness that Johnson’s work extends from performance to video to installation.
Doors open at 5:30 pm.
Individual lecture tickets: Free for DAMC members & students w ID; $10 DAM volunteers, $15 DAM members, $20 nonmembers.
