This public talk coincides with the 81-year-old’s inclusion in We Will Walk –Art and Resistance in the American South at Turner Contemporary in Margate, which features a selection of these photographs. Curated by artist Hannah Collins and theorist and researcher Paul Goodwin, the exhibition is open 7 February to 3 May 2020.
