Lynnée Denise

Lynnée Denise is an artist, scholar, and producer whose work reflects on underground cultural movements, the 1980s, migration studies, theories of escape, and electronic music of the African Diaspora. Denise coined the term “DJ scholarship” to re-position the role of the DJ from a party purveyor to an archivist, cultural custodian, and information specialist regarding music with critical value. Her work has been featured at prestigious institutions such as the Broad museum, the Tate Modern, Savvy Contemporary Gallery Berlin, Goldsmiths University of London, Iziko South African Museum, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Stanford, Yale, NYU, and Princeton University.
