Art in Conversation: Artists, Art Collectives, and Creatives in Africa and the Diaspora
Art is an essential part of life, whether we live it, consume it, or produce it. In the last decade or so, we have experienced the emergence of African and Afrodiasporic artists in different fields – music, visual arts, digital art, creative writing, performing arts, etc. And for most of us, the work of the artist is our gateway into their many different experiences, experiences we otherwise may have never been introduced to.
But what does it mean to be a creative or an artist?
During the months of April, May, and June, we will explore what moves artists to create and express themselves in the ways that they do. We’ll use these conversations as an opportunity to grasp the challenges and/or benefits of being a creative in an age of digital media, and money driven businesses.
All posts dedicated to this quarter’s theme will be tagged “Art in Conversation”
