Tuesday Talk | Hannah Catherine Jones
The Tuesday Talks programme invites artists, thinkers and curators to explore an aspect of their practice in a lunch-hour. Visiting speakers shape the form of their talk, so you can expect anything from in-depth discussion of a current interest to a live performance.
Hannah Catherine Jones (aka Foxy Moron, b. 1987, Doncaster, UK) is a London-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, researcher, radio presenter (NTS), composer, conductor and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Jones is currently a DPhil scholar (AHRC) at The Ruskin School of Art/Christ Church at Oxford University. Jones' audio-visual productions explore concepts of ancestry and totality, both in relation to art and to ‘blackness’, ideas of ‘cultural reparations’, and an ongoing questioning of what we consider to be Afrofuturism. Jones has performed, exhibited and lectured widely including at Beirut Arts Centre, Beirut, Lebanon (2017); Liquid Architecture, Melbourne, Australia (2017); Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts (2015); Art Week Joburg, Johannesburg, South Africa (2015); All Souls College, Oxford, UK (2014); and NYU, New York (2013).
