Bio,
1988 –

Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, and researcher from New Orleans, living in London. Her work investigates the 'continuum of extractivism', which spans from settler-colonial genocide and slavery to fossil fuel production.
 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 makes videos and installations, organises public actions, delivers testimony to organs of the United Nations, occupies billboards, writes polemics, performs lectures, and uses counter-cartographic strategies to map the spatial logics that make geographies, unmake communities, and break Earth’s ecologies. Her work has 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 PhD candidate 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.
