Christopher Blay and Christina Rees talk about the events of the last few weeks, and whether black artists are holding out hope that this moment will move the needle on racial violence and injustice.

“I think artists aren’t waiting for museums and galleries to create a response to what’s happening in the world. It’s either something that infects you and invades your work, or something that’s always a part of who you are and you can’t make anything else.”
