Jamaican-American artist Shamar Watt explores the spirit of resistance embodied by Jamaica's Maroon people. He draws inspiration from his own Maroon heritage—descendants of escaped enslaved Africans who rebelled against British colonialists. In his upcoming performance "Summon," Watt reimagines Maroon roots as a cosmic garden, intertwining phenomena like black holes with the perception of the black body and spirit. Join esteemed curator Rosie Gordon-Wallace in an intimate conversation with Watt as they explore maroonage as a concept and as a way to perceive and hear the free black body.
