The exhibition "(Untitled) Fanon" draws inspiration from the literary work of Frantz Fanon (1925–1961), a renowned Black psychiatrist and philosopher who made significant contributions to postcolonial theory and critical studies in the 20th century.

In this lecture, Dr. Patrick Walter (faculty, African and African Diaspora Studies Department) discusses Fanon’s life, work, and legacy, then joins artist Madison Cooper for a conversation surrounding Fanon’s writings as they relate to her work in the exhibition.
