A (Much Needed) Longer Conversation
Join Curated Storefront live on Zoom for a panel discussion organized by Akron artist Kwamé Gomez.
During this hour-long panel discussion organized by Akron artist Kwamé Gomez and moderated by Architect in Residence at KSU and practicing artist, Diane Davis-Sikora, you will hear directly from emerging artists (Alexandria Couch, Benjamin Gale-Platt, Double R., Blessing Greer, and Zeinab Diomande) as they discuss the meaning of being young and Black in the current climate of contemporary art.
“This discussion will explore an introspective view concerning the future of visual contemporary art and where we, as young Black visual artists, see ourselves in it — changing with or against it. Giving space for a conversation that serves as a fundamental ground to discuss the endless possibilities based in our knowledge of the present and past histories concerning art, Blackness, and innovation. What is in store for us when we, Black artists, stand in contemporary art now and years down the line, hoping to inspire and empower a new generation of artists to create and imagine a world beyond
