Zeelie Brown

Workshop

Zeelie Brown transforms art spaces into utopic, black, trans- feminine, post-internet refuges called “soulscapes” merging cello performance, electronic music, and installation art to overturn landscapes of capital intent on the economic genocide of queer black people. She depth charges Yoruba and Kikongo embodied philosophies, met with the folk theory of her family’s maroon Alabama homestead, in order that those who experience her soulscapes leave freed. Zeelie was a 2017 Southern Constellations Fellow, a Fellow at the Caribbean Cultural Center, and a Column Shifting Fellow at the Flux Factory. She has performed at RISD, Flux Factory, Elsewhere, Recess Gallery, Project Row Houses, and Harvard University. Zeelie has been featured in Art in America and the Village Voice.
