Led by artist Zinzi Minott and curator Imani Robinson, this day-long workshop includes a visit to the exhibition, presentations on emerging forms of politically engaged art and curatorial practice, and discussion of the questions raised by the exhibition, with a particular focus on Black British responses.
Zinzi Minott’s work focuses on the relationship between dance, bodies and politics. Strongly identifying as a dancer, she seeks to complicate the boundaries of dance and the place of black female bodies within the form. Her work explores how dance is perceived through the prisms of race, queer culture, gender and class. Zinzi is interested in the space between dance and other art forms, and though her practice is driven through dance, the outcomes range from performance and live art to sound, film and dance.
Imani Robinson is a London-born and based British-Caribbean, African-American organiser, facilitator and writer. Her work focuses on resisting anti-Black racism, and further extends to issues concerning black feminist liberation, LGBQTNI+ rights and decolonial environmental politics, building radical consciousness through movement-building, art, education and dialogue. She channels her work through Black Lives Matter UK and sorryyoufeeluncomfortable, a collective that uses art practice to interrogate dominant discourses. Robinson is also a contributor to Huck and Ceasefire Magazine.
