I’m honored to be involved in Now & Then, Here & There, a two-day conference led by Black Artists and Modernism (BAM) in association with Iniva, that will address the understated connections and points of contention between Black-British artists’ practice and the work of art’s relationship to Modernism. Led by Sonia Boyce and David Dibosa, there’s an absolutely stellar line-up including Kobena Mercer, Irit Rogoff, Paul Goodwin, Perminder Kaur, Dorothy Price, Courtney J. Martin and many others. I’ll be leading a break-out workshop session on Frank Bowling’s painting ‘Mirror’, focusing on the museological framing of the work through its text panel, and also speaking on Friday’s plenary session.
