New #Studio6Forum! Relational rEvolutions Curator Roundtable at the 2019 Queer Arts Festival
In our latest #CJSFStudio6Forum video, we join curator Elwood Jimmy along with artists Alexandra Gelis, David Ng, jes sachse and Raven John at the 2019 Queer Arts Festival as they talk about that year's titular exhibition, "Relational rEvolutions."
The themes of this panel discussion are more relevant than ever, speaking of a "revolution of being," or "artistic, spiritual and life" practices that gesture toward a "radically different and tender way of being." Such ways of being are, as Jimmy writes in the panel's statement on the QAF website, necessary to "face the violence on particular bodies – the human and non-human – that keep colonial systems in place, and to not lose sight of what we do not want to see."
