"My Silences Had Not Protected Me" Panel Discussion

About the Panelists:

Jasmine Wahi
Jasmine Wahi is a curator, activist, and a founder and co-director of Project for Empty Space. Her practice predominantly focuses on issues of female empowerment, complicating binary structures within social discourses, and exploring multi-positional cultural identities through the lens of intersectional feminism.

Natalie Frank
Natalie Frank is an American artist currently living and working in New York City. Her work deals with themes of power, sexuality, gender, feminism, and identity. Although Frank is best known as a painter, she has also explored other mediums including sculpture and drawing. She often blurs the line between reality and fantasy, and the artist notes that she wants her work to be located on the edge of Magical Realism and the real world, the former in literature being a major source of inspiration for Frank.

Ogemdi Ude
Ogemdi Ude is a director, choreographer, and researcher who graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English, Theater, and Dance. Her research focuses on black performance theory along with interests in memory, trauma, and healing. She is passionate about making and curating visual and performance art with a focus on people of color.

Amy Wilson
Amy Wilson is an artist who works primarily in fibers and watercolors. She explores the tension that exists between her interior world and the exterior one. Wilson incorporates personal stories and observations along with commentary about current events (both personal and ones that make it to the news). They depict a "chorus" of young girls, all of whom the artist sees as being an extension of herself and as representations of the many voices she has inside of her; as such she considers her work to be an ongoing exploration of self-portraiture. 

Anastasia Warren
Born in The Bronx, Anastasia Warren lives and works in New York City. She received her BFA in Visual Critical Studies (VCS) from the School of Visual Arts. Her work explores identity, justice, and imitation. Her work has been featured in Afropunk and The New Museum of Contemporary Art's Black Women Artist for Black Lives Matter exhibition. Her curatorial projects include the group show Say Her Name: Being Here and Now and co-curatring VCS's Senior Open Studies. She is interested in exposing discriminatory practices in academia, decolonizing art spaces, and rolling around in clay.
