Abstract or Description

In July 2020 ARTISTS MAKE CHANGE commissioned a series of conversations to discuss experiences and concerns facing contemporary artists today. The conversation took place during the COVID 19 lockdown and a few months after the murder by U.S. law enforcement of George Floyd.

Amended quote from AMC about the conversation.

"In this vital, engaged and wide-ranging cross-generational discussion, Barby Asante and Languid Hands (Rabz Lansiquot & Imani Mason Jordon*) talked radical action, covering a series of urgent topics and themes; representation and diversity, the 'hyper-visibility' of Blackness, curatorial obligation, time for deep thinking and reappraisal, community building and care, violence and carcerality - a commitment to Black Liberation, and Black quiet/Black interiority."
