    "Paravisions: Sketching an Alternate Art(World)" by Imar Hutchins, Zoma Wallace and Matthew Gordon.
    Using our panelists’ recent project honoring the Windrush Generation in Birmingham, UK, as a point of entry, we consider questions such as: Is Art (as we experience it today) exclusively the province of the wealthy? Is it a status symbol? A commodity to be hoarded and flipped? Is Art trapped in a space of monetary concern, or does it still have room to move as a vehicle for something else? How should we (can we) consider work by Black artists, as we deal with the current “mainstream” fascination with it? And how should we (can we) protect it? … Our panel seeks to question the ways that Art can be experienced, presented, collected, utilized and/or understood. (Kindly note that seating for this portion of the event is limited and not guaranteed by RSVP).
