The Rootwork | Grounding Community Arts Education Beyond the Pandemic series is an online learning series about how to create programming informed by, and supportive of, the many, varied lived experiences of our communities in the unique context of this moment.
In this fifth session of the series, artist Shaun Leonardo will discuss his multi-disciplinary work, which negotiates societal expectations of masculinity, namely definitions surrounding black and brown masculinities, along with its notions of achievement, collective identity, and experience of failure. The artist will describe his investment in performance as a process of embodiment—exploring the ways in which memory, fear, and trauma are lodged within our bodies.
Presenter: Shaun Leonardo
