James Montford, Black Indian performance

Adrian Piper, My Calling (Card) #1 (detail), 1986

Microagression: a subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a minority or other nondominant group that is often unintentional or unconsciously reinforces a stereotype: microaggressions such as "I don't see you as black."

Join us on May 5 when artist James Montford hosts a Gertrude's conversation to explore the methodologies around navigating an art community that supports a patronage of sometimes inclusion. We will examine institutional structures that should speak more clearly about these matters, talk about how artist/citizens can impact art, race and activism, and discuss taking action to challenge racial biases in art history and broader cultural canons today.
