“Trapademia™: Casual, Causal Black Brilliance” A talk with interdisciplinary artist and scholar Dr. Fahamu Pecou
Thursday, April 8
6:00 – 7:00 PM (EST)

“Trapademia™: Casual, Causal Black Brilliance”
A talk with interdisciplinary artist and scholar Dr. Fahamu Pecou

Synopsis:
"TRAPADEMIA™️ engages the liminal spaces of Black cultural knowledge and understanding, spaces often overlooked or misinterpreted by the mainstream. Through visual and performance art works, I explore this idea inquisitively, linking the aesthetic of trap to broader understandings of the collective hustle mentality and survival strategies performed in these marginalized spaces."


Dr. Fahamu Pecou is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar whose works combine observations on hip-hop, fine art and popular culture. Pecou’s paintings, performance art, and academic work addresses concerns around contemporary representations of Black men and how these images impact both the reading
and performance of Black masculinity. https://www.fahamupecouart.com/
