Fred Moten is concerned with social movement, aesthetic experiment and black study and has worked on several projects that try to approach these matters. The latest of these are an album called Fred Moten/Brandon López/Gerald Cleaver (Reading Group Records, 2022) and a book called All Incomplete (Minor Compositions, 2021), co-authored with Stefano Harney. In addition to his collaborations with Harney and with López and Cleaver, Moten has worked with many other artists, artist collectives, scholars, and study groups, including Arika, the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy, Renee Gladman, the Institute for Physical Sociality, the Jazz Study Group, Jennie C. Jones, Le Mardi Gras Listening Collective, William Parker, Moved by the Motion and the Harris-Moten Quartet. Moten lives in New York and teaches performance studies and comparative literature at New York University.

Fred will talk about paintings by Alma Thomas and elements of black feminist thought and practice.
