Platform 2020 co-curator and artist, Okwui Okpokwasili with scholar, Saidiya Hartman, multi-media artist, Simone Leigh, and Black feminist theorist of visual culture and contemporary art, Tina Campt, will engage in a public conversation via Zoom on Thursday, March 26th.
As an extension of the Platform 2020: Utterances From The Chorus programming, we will gather, digitally, across disciplines, to field questions surrounding the implications, textures, and politics of Slowness as it pertains to the current moment of global pandemic, quarantine, shut-downs, cancelations, and physical distance.
Tina and Okwui were scheduled to have a public conversation at Danspace Project on March 21st on the topic of Slowness as part of Platform 2020: Utterances From The Chorus. Slowness has taken on a very different resonance now. They are asking how we can address this moment when so many of us are forced to be still and yet so many, like healthcare workers and grocers, can’t stop moving as they put themselves at great risk.
