February 8th, 2024 | 7pm CST
Online via Youtube Live HERE
Join PJ Anderson as she discusses the changing role of the racialized potter through her Ceramic works. With the fusion of traditional Cultural ceramic learning, the exploration of the everyday weaponization as artifacts of a nonnarrative future scape, her work challenges what it is we choose to value. What parts of ourselves, our histories and our futures are seen as threatening, dangerous, and undecipherable, to others and to ourselves.
