 Arts + Design

In this talk, Alex Saragoza and Allan deSouza will hold a lively discussion on the relationships between art and migrations—both literal and metaphorical.
Allan deSouza is a Bay Area multi-media artist. His photography, installation, text and performance works restage colonial material culture through counter-strategies of fiction, erasure, and (mis)translation. His work has been exhibited extensively in the U.S. and internationally, including at the Walther Collection, Germany; Pompidou Centre, Paris; Gwangju Biennale, Korea; Guangzhou Triennale, China; ev+a Festival, Ireland; and in recent solo exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, SF; the Phillips Collection, DC; SF Camerawork; Fowler Museum, LA; and the Krannert Art Museum, Champaign, IL. He is the author of How Art Can Be Thought: a Handbook for Change (Duke University Press, 2018), and other writings have been published in various journals, anthologies, and catalogues, including Third Text, London; Wolgan Art Monthly, South Korea, X-TRA, Los Angeles. He is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Art Practice, UC Berkeley. He is represented by Talwar Gallery in New York City and New Delhi.
