Evocation of Inheritance

Adrienne Edwards reflects on the mutual influence of blackness, as a framework for analytical discourse and performance and a theory of the body, specifically the way in which certain aesthetic operations allow for escape routes around issues of visibility, opacity and errancy that 2021 can be experienced in works across the Look for Me All Around You platform. Responding to Edwards’ reflections, and following suit, will be a sonic intervention by Jace Clayton from (2019) and a reading by Hannah Black from a text developed for Suntitled (2019)(with Ebba Fransén Waldhör).
