Aruna D’Souza in Conversation with Allan deSouza

Lecture | September 21 | 5-7 p.m. | Wheeler Hall, Maude Fife Room, Room 315


Aruna D’Souza

Arts Research Center


Co-sponsored by the Arts Research Center and the University of California Humanities Research Institute, the departments of Art Practice and English, and Berkeley Arts + Design.

Aruna D’Souza writes about modern and contemporary art; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; and how museums shape our views of each other and the world. The New York Times calls her most recent book, Whitewalling: Art, Race & Protest in 3 Acts (Badlands Unlimited, 2018) “a laser beam of a book, unwavering and on target.” Her work appears regularly in 4Columns.org, where she is a member of the editorial advisory board, and has been published as well in The Wall Street Journal, Art News, Garage, Bookforum, Momus, Art in America, and Art Practical, among other places. She is editor of the forthcoming volumes Making It Modern: A Linda Nochlin Reader (Thames and Hudson) and A Presence That Signals Absence: Collected Writing of Lorraine O’Grady (1977-2018) (Duke University Press).

Allan deSouza is Associate Professor and Chair of the department of Art Practice.

ARC’s 2018-19 program is a collaboration between ARC Interim Director Natalia Brizuela (Film & Media and Spanish & Portuguese), Tarek Elhaik (Anthropology, UC Davis), Anneka Lenssen (History of Art), Leigh Raiford (African American Studies), and Poulomi Saha (English), supported by a generous grant from The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI).

The year’s investigations on art and critique from/in the Global South will take off with a Workshop in Mexico City (September 6-8), co-convened by Natalia Brizuela and Elena Tzelepis (University of Thessaly, Volos, Greece), organized through the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP) with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Mexico City workshop will take place at the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) at the UNAM. More details on the Mexico City workshop can be found here.

This project was supported in part by the University of California Office of the President MRPI funding MR-15-328710.
