John Jennings and the Visual World of Sanford Biggers: Codeswitch
October 18, 2021 7:00 pm–8:00 pm

John Jennings, a best-selling author, graphic novelist, curator, and professor, is widely known for his graphic novel adaptations of Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower and Kindred. To the publication Sanford Biggers: Codeswitch (Yale University Press, 2019), Jennings contributed a graphic essay and subsequently collaborated with Biggers to render the essay as moving image, accompanied by a score by Moon Medicin. In this upcoming conversation at our partner CAAM in Los Angeles, Jennings will discuss “Mother Patchwerk,” as video and graphic essay, and the layered logic inherent in the art and craft of quilting.

In person; masks required. Sanford Biggers: Codeswitch will open at 6:30 p.m. so you can view the exhibition before the talk.
