Miami-based cultural practitioner Onajide Shabaka will discuss his experiences in the Suriname forests during his cultural exchange and independent residency in 2017. Shabaka’s practice investigates the botanical form and physical and chemical properties of cultivated and foraged plants. While exploring foraging more closely, his practice took on a greater meaning within the context of the African diaspora and Amerindigenous peoples, and influenced a new language in his current series of works.
