Bio,
1988 –

Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, and researcher from New Orleans. Her work investigates the 'continuum of extractivism', which spans from settler-colonial genocide and slavery to fossil fuel production, gentrification, and police and corporate impunity.
        In exposing the layers of violence and resistance that comprise the foundations of US society, she opens up space to imagine a path to ecological reparations.

       Imani is currently a researcher with Forensic Architecture, an economic inequality fellow with Open Society Foundations, and the editor of the second issue of MARCH, a journal of art and strategy, themed around Black Ecologies.
       Imani’s work
has been presented internationally, including in the US, the UK, Poland, Germany, and the UAE. She organises public actions, delivers testimony to organs of the United Nations, occupies commercial billboards, writes polemics, performs lectures, and uses counter-cartographic strategies to unravel the spatial logics used by colonial-corporate agents to make geography, unmake communities, and break Earth’s geology.

        Imani received her MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture (CRA) at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2019 ad her BA in Anthropology and Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2010.
