Artist Talk with Heather Agyepong

London-based artist Heather Agyepong has worked within photographic and performance arts since 2009 and is interested in mental health and well-being, activism, invisibility, the diaspora and the archive. She uses both lens-based practices and performance to create cathartic experiences for herself and her audiences. Agyepong’s works have been published, performed and exhibited extensively within the UK and internationally. A selection of her photographs is currently on view at the Mead Art Museum.

Join us to learn more about Agyepong’s artistic practice; her acclaimed project Too Many Blackamoors; and her forthcoming projects, performances and exhibitions. This conversation will be moderated by Aneeka Henderson, assistant professor of sexuality, women's and gender studies.

This program is supported by the Arts at Amherst Initiative and will take place via Zoom. Registration is required.
