Making art, participating in art projects and being a citizen—they all require patience and advocacy.
As an artist, I want to believe that art has the capacity to invite people to become more engaged.
I think art can’t necessarily solve problems, but it can help create meaning around those shared problems that we have.
We need institutions to take risks and to curate from a position of respect and familiarity with subjects such as racism.
To that end, more museums, film festivals and art commissions need to have people of color in positions of power.
