4:00 PM The Continuous Clapback: The Legacy of Language The African American Studies Program highlights "The Legacy of Language" as a tool to speak the truths of Black women through spoken word poetry and hip-hop music. Alyesha Wise (poet and teaching artist) and Miki Vale (local hip-hop artist and activist) illustrate how Black women continue to use language as a vehicle for challenging power, stereotypes and marginalization. Alyesha Wise and Miki Vale inspire audiences to engage with language as constructions of self-reflection, political activism, cultural awareness and love.

5:00 PM Guest Lecture: Hung Liu—Summoning Ghosts One of the first Chinese artists to study in the United States, Hung Liu is widely regarded for a vast and innovative body of highly evocative paintings, murals, drawings, printmaking and installation. Characterized by the expressive, painterly effects of Western Modernism and Chinese decorative motifs, her work is richly layered. She frequently references anonymous historical photographs of China and, with deft technique, breathes new life into individuals lost in the sweep of history, particularly Chinese women, children, refugees, peasants, prostitutes and soldiers. In essence, Liu turns old photographs into new paintings, liberated from the rigid methodology of socialist realism—the style in which she was trained—by merging both Eastern and Western traditions. Over the years Liu has incorporated more and more paint drips into her work, achieved by thinning the pigments with linseed oil. Gravity, her "sacred collaborator," pulls the paint downward and divides the composition in interesting, unpredictable ways. This effect simultaneously unifies and dissolves the photo-based imagery, suggesting the passage of memory into history.
