Episode 5: Jacqueline Francis & Kathy ZarurMarch 10, 2017
Weston Teruya welcomes artists, arts administrators, and cultural workers of color to get real about their lives, practices, and careers. Each episode is an in-depth look into how art gets made, but more importantly how these folks are seeing to the system of art’s (UN)making.
In this episode, we talk with curators Jacqueline Francis and Kathy Zarur about the nuances of place, the movement of people and ideas, and working in dialogue with artists in Where is Here, the exhibition they co-curated at the Museum of the African Diaspora (on view through April 2, 2017) and Mashrabiya: The Art of Looking Back, an exhibition at the San Francisco State University Fine Art Gallery, which Zarur co-curated with Santhi Kavuri-Bauer, Mark Johnson, and Sharon Bliss (on view through March 16, 2017).
