Brown Swerve: Yale Norfolk School of Art Lecture

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tavia Nyong’o will lecture on José Muñoz’s book The Sense of Brown: Ethnicity, Affect and Performance which Muñoz was completing at the time of his death and his thoughts about the color brown as a certain ‘ground’ of color.

“The challenge here,” José Esteban Muñoz writes in an essay on the LA punk band The Germs, “is to look to queerness as a mode of ‘being-with’ that defies social conventions and conformism and is innately heretical yet still desirous for the world, actively attempting to enact a commons that is not a pulverizing, hierarchical one bequeathed through logics and practices of exploitation.”
