How does space, and who gets to design a space impact the way people live in it? That’s one question asked by Torkwase Dyson in her new show at art gallery and nonprofit Eyebeam. The show, Unkeeping, mixes themes of data, architecture and race.

As part of the show, Dyson will participate in a talk, titled Black Spatial Matters with Brown professor Tony Bogues and architect Mario Gooden, of the firm Huff + Gooden Architects.

“This conversation will center on the relationships between architecture, ecology and humanism,” Eyebeam writes. “Given that space in the Americas has historically been shaped by racial and colonial power, how could the experience of African diaspora inform the creation of spaces that are more livable and free?”

The talk is at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 9 and is free and open to the public. Eyebeam is located in Industry City.

Bogues, Dyson and Gooden draw on their research as thinkers and practitioners to imagine alternative radical spaces, and its relevance for an expanded notion of environmental justice.
