Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, writer, and researcher from New Orleans, based between New Orleans and London. Her work investigates the “continuum of extractivism,” which spans from settler-colonial genocide and slavery to fossil fuel production and climate change.
In exposing the layers of violence and resistance that form the foundations of settler-colonial society, she opens space to imagine paths to ecological reparations.
Imani combines archival research, ecological philosophy, legal theory, people’s history, and counter-cartographic strategies to map the spatial logics that make geographies, unmake communities, and break Earth’s geology. Her research is disseminated through films and art installations, public actions and performance, and reports and testimony delivered to courts and organs of the United Nations. Her artistic outputs have been presented internationally, including in the US, the UK, Poland, Germany, and the UAE, most recently at the 12th Berlin Biennale.
Imani received her MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2019 and her BA in Anthropology and Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2010. Among other things, she is currently a doctoral candidate in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London, a research fellow with Forensic Architecture, and an associate lecturer in MA Architecture at the Royal College of Arts.
