Yashua Klos, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, and Karen J. Revis in conversation with Yulia Topchiy
For this is your home, my friend, do not be driven from it; great men have done great things here, and will again, and we can make America what America must become. — James Baldwin
James Baldwin’s writing, over fifty years old, continues to show us how to use our imagination to see our experiences and our country in new light during times of political and social change. Join artists Yashua Klos, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, and Karen J. Revis, and in a conversation about what brings hope to America in their own work. Yashua Klos is a Chicago-born artist who uses innovative printmaking techniques to address issues of identity, race, memory, and community. Nontsikelelo Mutiti is a Zimbabwe-born visual artist and educator who elevates the practices of Black peoples through conceptual design, experimental publishing, and archiving practices. Karen J. Revis is a New York-based artist whose series REVISionary Prints explores her experience growing up in the Black community and celebrates leaders throughout African-American history. The talk will be moderated by Yulia Topchiy of Assembly Room, co-curator of Living in America.
This is the third in a series of four conversations held in conjunction with Living in America.
This Zoom webinar is free and open to the public. Live captioning will be available. The event will be recorded and made available online. Feel free to send questions in advance to email@example.com.
