A contested term within the visual arts and wider cultural debates, this event reflects on the current status of 'decolonial' activity in the visual arts, and explores what kind of politics are being produced.
This discussion will ask probing questions about what we mean by the decolonial and what we aspire to produce through such work. What would decolonized public spaces and institutions look like and how might this reject simple narratives of inclusion? Is current decolonial activity fulfilling a disruptive political and intellectual agenda? And who has the right to speak and act on behalf of a decolonial politics?
The panel will include Alanna Lockward and Sunil Gupta, chaired by Autograph ABP Director and Curator Mark Sealy.
The audience will be invited to participate in a Q&A and continue the conversation after the event with a free drink.
