Originally from Detroit, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko is a Nigerian American curator, poet, and performance artist currently based in Brooklyn, NY. His newest performance #negrophobia, premiering in the Agnes Varis Performance Lab, examines the erotic fear associated with the Black male body. Kosoko juxtaposes interior and exterior landscapes to expose a confessional identity-mashup where visual and performance aesthetics collide in a face-off of self revelation, ecstatic theatricality, and discomfort. Part social commentary and part self-critique, #negrophobia references issues related to grief, misogyny and Black patriarchal constructs of masculinity housed within the chaotic frame of a body and mind on the verge of psychosomatic collapse.
