Yeehaw! BCA Founder chats with AfroPunk about art, blackness and the internet.
"My interest in Black artists stems from my interest in Blackness. Studying art can be a very daunting task for the Black scholar. You’re taught to apotheosize certain artists and worship their work in a vacuum. You learn about Pablo Picasso, not Wifredo Lam. You learn about Andy Warhol, not Jean-Michel Basquiat. You learn about Marcel DuChamp, not Adam Pendleton. I’m committed to finding Black artists, supporting them as best I can and making sure that everyone has access to their work.”
