Paul Mellon Centre | Black British Artists & Political Activism: “She is not Bullet Proof”

December 9, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This is session six of the Black British Artists and Political Activism series. In this session, Marlene Smith in conversation with Alice Correia will ​attend to Smith’s seminal work Good Housekeeping I (1985). They will consider its aesthetic and political implications against the backdrop of racist, and often violent, policing practices that led to the shooting of Deborah ‘Cherry’ Groce in 1985 and, more recently, became the focus of activisms arising from the Black Lives Matter movement.
The series will run every Thursday from 4 November to 9 December from 18.30 to 20.00. This series will be broadcast live as a Zoom webinar. It will be recorded and published at a later date. Registration through Eventbrite is required.
No prior art historical knowledge is necessary.
