EFA Project Space
323 W 39th St, New York, NY
Open House: Saturday, December 4 from 4-6 PM, featuring short presentations by CAS founder Anaïs Duplan with co-organizers John Engelbrecht and Kalmia Strong. Artists Kamari Carter and Lamar Robillard will talk about their work and process as part of an open conversation around the idea of jank.
Jank Museum, organized by curator Anaïs Duplan and the Center for Afrofuturist Studies (CAS), and presented by EFA Project Space investigates the idea of “jank,” speculating around objects made with limited resources to meet an immediate survival need. Taking cues from Adrian Piper in her essay, "The Joy of Marginality," Jank Museum invites artists who make work from the margins to center their own survival, persistence, and futurity.
Note: Proof of vaccination and masks required at all EFA events.
