Portraiture as Politics

Against a backdrop of retreating notions of multiculturalism and an increasing populist nationalism in Europe and America, is portraiture emerging as a resonant medium by which to assert black visibility? Does portraiture take on a dual role, both as the artistic practice of individuals and a form of collective endeavor? Led by David A. Bailey MBE (Artist and Curator), artists Kimathi Donkor, Irvin Pascal and Kudzanai-Violet Hwami, discuss how they are articulating their presence in portraiture at a time of rising reactionism.
