Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Tanekeya Word
Tanekeya Word (b. 1983, Clarksdale, Mississippi) creates multimedia visual art: paintings, drawings, fine art prints and book art. She is an art educator, cultural arts organizer and scholar based in Milwaukee, WI.

At the center of Tanekeya’s scholarship is the exploration of subaltern spaces: Black interiority in the United States of America and the cultural connection to identity, history, memory and re-memory. Utilizing portraiture, nature, material culture and Black artistic cultural production, such as literature, she examines the depths of Black women’s spatialities—real, imagined and lived practices.

All 2022-23 lectures will be FREE and offered virtually as pre-recorded events. Series supported in part by the UWM Black and Gold Committee & Differential Tuition funds, Frederick R. Layton Fund, the John Colt Memorial Art Fund, The Queer Curatorial Fund, Center for 21st Century Studies, Print Club, Focus, and OBJECT.
