Nigerian-American artist Jaamil Olawale Kosoko and collaborators lead audiences through a digital archive of video performance, conversation, and meditation in this hybrid multimedia living artwork that explores the ever-evolving ways in which digitality intersects with the fugitive realities and shapeshifting principles that Black queer people employ to survive and heal. Kosoko and a company of scholars, activists, and artists host a series of events, including a film screening, discussion, and healing session that aims to hold grief while also centering themes of liveness, beauty, humor, care, and joy.

The work operates as a flexible, digital commons. A pop-up community of organizers and practitioners center adaptive interactive learning as a means of creating sustainable, multi-tiered networks of care. Occurring on YouTube and the gaming platform Discord, Chameleon: The Living Installments is an experiment in creating a flexible space where Black voices are able to think and speak out loud.

Additionally, a reading group and live talk will be offered to collectively discuss Kosoko’s development process and the thematics of the work as outlined in a syllabus developed by Kosoko.
