Negarra Kudumu: Multidisciplinary collectives

May 1, 2021 – Jun 1, 2022

Negarra A. Kudumu is conducting research on Black Constellation, a multi-disciplinary creative collective founded in Seattle in 2012, and their relationship to other collectives in Africa and the Diaspora. 

Kudumu is an independent scholar, published writer, and healer working at the intersection of art and healing with a focus on contemporary art from the Pacific Northwest, Africa, South Asia, and their respective diasporas. Her curatorial expertise includes a residency at Bridge Productions where she curated work by the Seattle artist Mike Wagner, in an exhibition titled From Fool to World / Works by Mike Wagner. In 2017, Negarra co-organized the group exhibition Back Stories with Mariane Ibrahim, director and founder of the eponymous gallery, now headquartered in Chicago.


This Curatorial Research Fellowship was made possible by the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honor of the late Okwui Enwezor, with additional support from Steve McQueen and members of ICI's Board of Trustees and Leadership Council.
