Colin Quashie in conversation with Kali Holloway

In conjunction with his exhibition Colin Quashie: Linked, the artist will join Kali Holloway of the Make It Right Project October 1 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss his work and how it relates to current efforts to remove Confederate monuments around the country. In Linked, Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. Directed by Kali Holloway, the Make It Right (MIR) Project is a multimedia campaign dedicated to righting social justice wrongs. The inaugural project is focused on the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials, which are tangible eulogies to heroes of a treasonous anti-American campaign and a reflection of U.S. investment in white power and supremacy.
