Informed by Black feminism, queer theory of colour, and Afrofuturist theory, Wynn will present a new series of artwork exploring the myth of Drexciya, a mythology created by a late 1990s Detroit band of the same name, who envisioned a half-aquatic, half-human creature emerging from the enslaved Africans who were tossed overboard during the Middle Passage. Of this new series of artwork, they envision creating a new narrative in the mid-Atlantic, disrupting the current archive of the Middle Passage.

This talk is part of the Education, Equality and Development (EED) Group Seminars series.
