Join ROOT-ed and the Tate Collective team for this drop-in debate discussing how we can transform the art world to become more inclusive. With speakers presenting their experiences on the subject and an opportunity for guests to pose questions and join in the debate.
Root-ed will be discussing topics of race and appropriation, looking at whether art truly aims to represent everyone - or has not much really changed? The first discussion at 18.00 will use the example of Dana Schutz's Open Casket 2016, exhibited in the New York Biennial, which highlighted the death of Emmett Till. Following this, at 18.30, there will be a discussion of Turner Prize 2017 winner Lubaina Himid's Naming the Money 2004, which will open up topics of discussion on both aesthetic and contextual influences and inspirations.
ROOT-ed Zine is an independent zine that aims to promote the work of creative people of colour in the North West.
