#icantbreathe: una galleria

Sulla scia delle manifestazioni globali che si stanno muovendo al grido di Black Lives Matter, anche il mondo dell’arte sta reagendo all’ultimo respiro – #icantbreathe – di George Floyd. Abbiamo raccolto in questa galleria alcuni interventi.

Last night @czt and I went out on a mission to project #GeorgeFloyd on surfaces around the Twin Cities. It was an emotional rollercoaster to say the least and it makes me at a loss for words. Our city is very upset, confused, sad and scared. I’ve never seen anything like this in Minnesota ever and it really breaks my heart. I chose to remember George’s life with these photographs and live projection and the response in public was so embracing it made me realize that we can come together. But on the way home I had to drive through South Minneapolis to get to the freeway and came across long time Hexagon Bar burning to the ground with the owner across the street crying and yelling “This is not okay!” That’s when I saw what injustice can drive people to do and I was just stunned. I don’t even know what to say anymore. Rest Peacefully George. These photographs are for you.

In the last few weeks we’ve all had heavy hearts. Not only are we heartbroken at the unnecessary hatred and suffering in our world, but we are also saddened to have realised our own culpability. In my own privilege I’ve wrongfully assumed that because I’ve never had any conscious racist beliefs or prejudices, that it’s not my problem to solve. I’m so sorry that it’s taken until now for so many of us to use our voices. ⁣ ⁣ But I’m also hopeful. One of the amazing sides of social media is that it allows us to show solidarity & to spread helpful messages & information around the world. So let’s all try to be better & do better. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve created a blogpost on my website (linked in bio) with useful links to petitions & other resources which I have found helpful. Educate yourself: listen to a podcast, watch a documentary, read. Challenge and question yourself: recognise your privilege, have difficult conversations. Contribute: sign petitions, donate where you can, and help useful information to spread. ⁣ ⁣ But most of all, be proactive & be kind – don’t shame people who are trying their best. We all need to keep open hearts and open minds. We will make mistakes, but what matters is that we are all trying to move things in the same direction. ⁣ ⁣ #BlackLivesMatter #justiceforgeorgefloyd #icantbreathe #endpolicebrutality #nojusticenopeace #saytheirnames
