Diagnosis and Race as Phenomenon: A Lecture & Discussion with Jasmine Gibson

  • Spoonbill Books 99 Montrose Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Please join us Friday, February 23rd, 7:00 PM at Spoonbill Studio, 99 Montrose for a talk expanding on themes underlying Spoonbill Studio's current exhibition Daniel Turner; Drawings and Sculpture.

As the experience of psychosis underlies much of Turner’s current work, poet and psychoanalyst Jasmine Gibson has been invited to present a talk investigating the historical use of diagnosis of Black Americans. Examining historical documents from physicians, psychiatrists and social theorists in the United States, Gibson will discuss the connection between the development of psychology, incarceration, and race in the United States.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A-guided discussion. 

JASMINE GIBSON is a Philly jawn now living in Brooklyn and a soon to be psychotherapist for all your gooey psychotic episodes that match the bipolar flows of capital. She spends her time thinking about sexy things like psychosis, desire and freedom.

Please note that this event will be held at Spoonbill Studio at 99 Montrose Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11206.

Refreshments will be provided with a suggested donation.
