Temar France

Temar (b. 1986) is an interdisciplinary artist and cultural studies scholar based in Queens, New York. Her photographs, videos, literary and audio works focus on enactments of identity, waywardness and eroticism to trouble the visual fields that inform dominant ideas of race and gender. Through thoughtful compositions of Black bodies in relation and in space, she reclaims and archives performances of power and pleasure within a Black erotic frame to imagine Black life as an aesthetic of quiet and queer everyday delight.
