This conversation is presented in collaboration with Nigra Iuventa in conjunction with the exhibition Adam Pendleton: These Things We’ve Done Together

Following the example of Adam Pendleton, African and Afrodescendant artists from the world of the visual arts and other cultural fields—actors, writers, curators, filmmakers and more—are invited to reimagine the terms of art historical discourse and challenge its exclusions. They will notably touch on issues related to the development of new paradigms and the importance of work on visual and text-based language.  

The conversation will deconstruct the widely held notion that the arts are exempt from the  power relationships governing our societies. On the contrary, as the playwright and poet Gerty Dambury points out in Décolonisons les arts! (2018), they demonstrate the “reproduction of a political and cultural hierarchy at the top of which stands the white man, a hierarchy that is a direct product of the history of slavery, colonization, and dominance over populations, cultures, and bodies rendered inferior.”
