Join us for a lecture performance by Crystal Z. Campbell, followed by a conversation with curator Sadia Shirazi and artist Caroline Key.

The conversation will touch upon questions of flesh, fugitivity, and consent in relation to the medical-industrial complex, focusing on Campbell’s work on Henrietta Lacks’s immortal cells and Key’s work on the technological gaze in her new video work Khora.

Note: This event takes place during EFA’s Open Studios Weekend.
