Archiving the Black Diaspora: Jamaica 1980-Y2K, Creative Boost featuring Akeem Smith
Akeem Smith in conversation with CCS Professor Michael Stone-Richards

Presented in partnership with Red Bull Arts Detroit.

As an artist and creative director under the age of 30, what does it mean to explore one’s cultural identity through the act of preservation and archiving? Akeem Smith will highlight his life and what led him to his first solo exhibition No Gyal Can Test on view at Red Bull Arts. The 3-month long exhibition is a living archive and testament to the vivid fashions of the Jamaican Dancehall scene, from 1985 to Y2K.
