Merray Gerges and Aruna D’Souza
Atrium
Tuesday 23 October 2018
6–8 pm
Alongside Canadian Art editor Merray Gerges, art critic and activist Aruna D’Souza will discuss her recent book Whitewalling: Art, Race and Protest in Three Acts(2018) and the politics of art criticism. The conversation will be an opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue about the intersections between art, arts institutions, technology and politics. D’Souza and Gerges will discuss how they address structural racism, diversity, and inclusion in their own practices and, in particular, how they have mobilized digital and social media platforms for criticism and scholarly debate.
