In the framework of the exhibition Heroines, Birds and Monsters at the Amant Foundation, Berlin-based artist Grada Kilomba will join Simone Leigh for a conversation at Géza, Amant’s space for discursive events and performances.
Both artists draw on common reference points within their practices through different methodologies, shaped by the study of African traditions, black female subjectivity, the vernacular, storytelling, and post-colonial ideas.
The discussion will center on Kilomba’s exhibition at Amant, Heroines, Birds, and Monsters, focusing on the importance of establishing historical awareness through new interpretations of subjects, objects, and narratives.

A small reception will follow the presentation at 306 Maujer, celebrating the artists and the official opening of the entire Amant campus.



When: 09/10/21 at 6-8:00pm EDT
Location: 315/306 Maujer St., Brooklyn, NY 11206
