For this virtual program looking at his exhibition Heirloom and beyond, Matthew Metzger joins scholar Fumi Okiji for a conversation that delves into painting and music, questions around expression, and more.
Fumi Okiji is Assistant Professor in the Rhetoric Department at University of California, Berkeley. She works across black study, critical theory, and sound and music studies. Her research and teaching looks to black expression for ways to understand modern and contemporary life, by way of social theory. Okiji is the author of Jazz as Critique: Adorno and Black Expression Revisited (Stanford University Press, 2018) and is currently working on a second book project, tentatively entitled Billie’s Bent Elbow: The Standard as Revolutionary Intoxication.
