The Liberatory Art and Praxis of Apocalypse: A Mythic Perspective
February 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Li Sumpter, Ph.D. is an independent scholar and multidisciplinary artist who applies strategies of D.I.Y. media and mythic design toward building better, more resilient communities of the future. Her artistic practice–the “art of survival”–addresses threats to mind, body and spirit with a focus on the readiness and resilience of black, brown and indigenous peoples in times of crises. Li’s academic research explores the anatomy and aesthetics of apocalypse myths and afrofuturist narratives driven by feminine archetypes. Her creative research and collaborative design initiatives engage the art of survival and sustainability through diverse ecologies and stories of change.
