This week around the department of art: 

MONDAY – FEBRUARY 8, 2016 – 5:30 PM - Fabrice Monteiro lecture at the Museum of Culture and Environment, Dean Hall "Prophesizing the Global." Noted African artist Fabrice Monteiro presents on his much-discussed "Maroons" series, which highlights continuities in the treatment of the bodies of persons of color from the slave trade to the present era of mass incarceration.  Recently recognized by Foreign Policy as one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2015, his photographic images, which also explore global climate change and environmental justice, are beautiful, arresting and haunting. Part of the Mass Incarceration & Racial Justice: Black and Brown Lives Do Matter series.
