Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons, this symposium brings together scholars, artists, technologists, and Wellesley College students to present new critical perspectives on Fatimah Tuggar’s multimedia practice.

The event features talks, tours, and interactive workshops organized over two days.

Co-sponsored by the Paulson Ecology of Place Initiative, the Newhouse Center for the Humanities, the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens, the Knapp Center, and BrickSimple LLC

Multimedia artist Fatimah Tuggar (b. 1967, Kaduna, Nigeria) interrogates the systems underlying human interactions with both high-tech gadgets and handmade crafts.

Now based in Kansas City, Tuggar is renowned for her work that layers binary code with artisanry, and her sculptures, photomontages, videos, and interactive works challenge romanticized notions of ancient traditions and recent inventions.
