Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, and researcher from New Orleans. Her work investigates the continuum of Extractivism, from settler-colonial genocide and slavery to fossil fuel production, gentrification, and police and corporate impunity.
These investigations expose the layers of violence and resistance that comprise the foundations of US society and imagine a horizon of ecological reparations.
Imani has worked across the US, as well as internationally in the UK, Poland, and Germany. She received her MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture (CRA) at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2019.
Among other things, she is currently an economic inequality fellow with Open Society Foundations, a Researcher with Forensic Architecture, a visiting researcher at the CRA, and a visiting lecturer in Environmental Architecture at the Royal College of Art.
