From Invisibility to Manifestation
Wednesday, April 26 at 7 P.M. in the Gardner Lab Theatre
This event is free and open to the public.

Jeannette Ehlers is a Copenhagen-based artist of Danish and Trinidadian descent whose practice takes shape experimentally across photography, video, installation, sculpture, and performance. Ehlers’ work often evokes decolonial hauntings and disruptions, and she insists on the possibility for empowerment and healing in her art, honoring legacies of resistance in the African diaspora. She merges the historical, the collective, and the rebellious with the familial, the bodily, and the poetic.
