I Have Survived Miguel A. López in dialogue with Katie Numi Usher and Johan Mijail

Watch on Zoom and Facebook

As part of UNTITLED, ART's Caribbean focused programming, the fair is presenting this panel in Spanish.

This conversation will approach the work of two poets and visual artists from the Caribbean, whose work explores intimacy, immigration, memory, affection, health, and colonial persistence in contemporary society. Johan Mijail (Dominican Republic) and Katie Numi Usher (Belize) will be moderated by Miguel A. López, Co-director and Chief Curator of TEOR / éTica, Costa Rica.

Katie Numi Usher is a writer, poet, and visual artist. Her work employs media as diverse as performance, embroidery, watercolors and online social media platforms to explore questions around blackness and black female erasure, while confronting and deconstructing the gatekeeping of museum and gallery spaces. ?In 2018, she was recipient of the Bridget Jones Travel Award. She is the author of KATIE Nami Usher , published by Image Factory Art Foundation in 2020.

Johan Mijail is a writer and performer. S / he is the author of Metafiction (2011), Scriptures of the Other Body (Ediciones Cielo Naranja, 2018), and Anti-Racist Manifesto: Writings for an Immigrant Biography (Los Libros de la mujer rota, 2018). In 2011, Mijail participated in the film Sister of the Collective Lewis Forever in Berlin, Germany. Mijail has participated in performance festivals in the United States, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Germany, with literary and visual work that invites a trans-feminist and decolonial imaginary. 

Miguel A. López is a writer, researcher and Co-director and Chief Curator of TEOR / éTica, Costa Rica. He is the author of Dissident Fictions in the Land of Misogyny (Pesopluma, 2019) and Stealing History. Counter-narratives and artistic practices of opposition (Metales Pesados, 2019).
