Interdisciplinary artists Mendi and Keith Obadike will talk about their practice in sound, new media, and literature in conjunction with the exhibition "For the Record" currently on view at the Beard and Weil Galleries. Exploring the implications of social and cultural systems in relation to blackness and identity, the Obadikes have investigated the commodification of race, the visualization of untold stories as disappearing hypertext, and the history of the subwoofer.
