Provenanced: African, Indigenous, and Oceanic Artworks Entering the Western Imagination

Provenanced: African, Indigenous, and Oceanic Artworks Entering the Western Imagination

Tariq Dixon, co-founder of TRNK NYC, will discuss PROVENANCED, a digital exhibition that debuted in fall of 2020. PROVENANCED explores what it might mean to establish a canon of African and Indigenous-inspired design that exists outside a colonial legacy of extraction and appropriation. Dixon's lecture will look at product design and industrial design through the lens of racism and classism in terms of curation, the industrial design business, and how the industry historically has been impacted by these phenomena.

In understanding how we might reframe historically mischaracterized terms such as “tribal” and “primitivism,” PROVENANCED examines how we might develop new terminologies that define cultural artifacts as decoration without a sincere interest in their origin stories, how we as designers can engage more critically with our inspirations and sources, and how the industry can better recognize and respect diasporic traditions.
