Artists on the Frontline

A Panel on Art's Role in Community Healing

This pandemic is making us question everything from our economic systems to the role of the state, and the purpose of art is no exception. What are artists doing to help and what is their responsibility? The pandemic has affected everyone everywhere from all walks of life, but hardest hit are those communities living at the edges of society, suffering social, economic or conflict-driven hardship. This panel will discuss how artists are working on the frontlines of the current crisis and how the pandemic might change the art-world systems and values of the past decades.

Panel discussion chaired by Anna Somers Cocks, founder editor, The Art Newspaper; Dr Cara Courage, Head of Tate Exchange, Tate Museums; Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, co-founder, UK Black Pride; and Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, director, Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Turin.
