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 contemporary gentrification, fossil fuel production, and police and corporate impunity. In exposing the layers of violence and resistance that comprise the foundations of US society, she opens up space to imagine a path to 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, and a visiting researcher at the CRA.
