How do artists address anti-Black violence? How have artists navigated decisions to include – or refuse – literal representations of this violence in their work? Held in conjunction with A Site of Struggle: American Art against Anti-Black Violence, artists Laylah Ali and Bethany Collins will explore these questions as they discuss their art and practice, and broader considerations presented when making work that explores historical and contemporary incidences of racial trauma and violence.

Conversation moderated by LaCharles Ward, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
