Antiracist Art:
The pitfalls of Whites trying to make antiracist art. For example people thinking that they can make images of suffering Blacks based upon their White sympathy, empathy, or anger. I think that Whites need to stop objectifying Black suffering as a means of commenting against racism, and instead make images of the ways that White people relate to systemic racism. (I’m working on White hearts and eyes that are really just decorated holes/absenses of senses, and wondering about pairing them with with seeing eyes and feeling hearts full of bullet holes. I want to learn if this would be appropriate or cause trauma where I don’t want to do that.)

Here are two resources: AK Garski, a non-gendered White artist teaches at the college level and created this short study guide from one of her college courses. http://akgarski.com/micro-syllabus-1-white-privilege-in-art . And here is another good article about white writers and anti-racist literature: https://lithub.com/white-artists-need-to-start-addressing-white-supremacy-in-their-work/

I don’t know what there is to discuss about Black artists making art on the subject of racism. But Lucinda Canty wrote in the chat, in answer to my question to the group before you arrived (are their any artists here?), that she is an artist. I’m hoping she will email me so that I can contact her back. I put my email in the chat.

Thank you so much for your discussion meetings. They make me feel more human.
