Be Black Baby: Edouard Glissant: Inhabit his Name

Join us Friday June 17th for Be Black Baby: a House Party Presents Edouard Glissant: Inhabit his Name. For the fourth installment of Be Black Baby, Simone Leigh is collaborating with artist and scholar Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich to present Edouard Glissant: Inhabit his Name. The evening will track the collapse of contemporary space and follow the individual through the entanglements of language and locale. Taking Glissant's seminal text The Poetics of Relation as a point of departure, artists and thinkers will venture into the many mutations of multilingualism that is creolization. Using the Caribbean as a model of hybrid culture, Inhabit His Name will occupy the realm of the metropolis where those involved in the process and critique of creolization "have made a sudden appearance."
