This Friday, February 18, BOMB and The Kitchen will host our next Across the Table talk with @jawolezollar and @kanezaschaal! Tune into our IG Live at 4PM ET to join their conversation.
In this special collaboration with @thekitchen_nyc, join us on February 2 for a celebration of Radcliffe Bailey’s recent solo exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery, Ascents and Echoes. Follow the link in our bio to get your ticket!
The Atlanta-based painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist uses rich layerings of imagery, found objects, and text to explore ancestry, race, migration and collective memory. He will be in conversation with architect Mabel O. Wilson, who makes visible the ways that anti-black racism shapes the built environment, along with the ways blackness creates spaces of imagination, refusal, and desire.
Attendees will be visually guided through the artists’ work, and the conversation will be followed by a Q&A.
