Tina Campt: We were talking earlier today about the difference between movement and motion. We think of these two things as synonyms but theyÕre not. Movement means changing the position of an object related to a fixed point in space; the focus is on that space. Motion, on the otherh hand, is a change in the location or positio And then coming out in August is the scholar Tina Campt's A Black Gaze, examining the work of a remarkable emerging cohort of Black artists (Arthur Jafa, Deana Lawson, Khalil Joseph, Dawoud Bey, Okwui Okpakwasili, Simone Leigh, and Luke Willis Thompson) who are actively dismantling the white gaze and demanding that we see, and see Blackness in particular, anew Tina Campt: We were talking earlier today about the difference between movement and motion. We think of these two things as synonyms but they're not. Movement means changing the position of an object related to a fixed point in space; the focus is on that space We have to also see this not just as a moment of visibility for black artists but also one of historically white institutions finally dragging themselves into the 21st century We believe that people within the African diaspora are connected by navigating and translating how they see themselves and what is claimed for them.

An artist's choice to engage with particular subjects can be performative and rehabilitory: an articulated interest in a subject can elide the sonic frequencies of the quotidian practices of the white/masters' gaze, to borrow from Tina Campt's methodology of seeing Black imagery through sound Tina Campt is Owen F. Walker Professor of Humanities and Modern Culture and Media at Brown University and a Research Associate at the Visual Identities in Art and Design Research Centre at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. She is the author of three books: Other Germans: Black Germans and the Politics of Race, Gender and Memory in the Third Reich (2004), Image Matters: Archive. These black artists' photographs poetically employ light, also represent what the gender and race theorist Tina Campt calls a still moving image. It's what black people do because most of what we see are white people. It's what women have developed the muscle to do because mostly what they see are men Tina Campt, Black Feminist Futures and The Practice of Fugitivity James H.

Look Closer is a column in which a writer visits museum, gallery or public art exhibition and explores a specific artwork or object that jumped out at them. Read more here.. She looks pissed. The. In accordance with Campt, what we have 'seen' is that photographs illuminate in equal parts what is visible in the image, as well as what is hidden within it, and that revelation is never a transparent process. Perhaps it is the case that the intimate relationships that these women had with Ginsberg and Burroughs respectively, granted them a select, or privileged, inclusion to. Africana studies scholar Tina M. Campt urges her readers to consider photographs as dynamic and contested sites of Black cultural formation, 8 and as an everyday strategy of affirmation and a confrontational practice of visibility. 9 She follows feminist theorist and photography historian Laura Wexler in stressing that what we learn of the past by looking at photographic records is.

It tries to understand how the work of certain artists challenges us not merely to look but to witness, and in the process provides a very different understanding of black life in our contemporary moment. It is an active and participatory encounter with what I'm calling a black gaze. A black gaze does not describe the viewpoint of black people We thought that it was singularly appropriate to celebrate our 20th anniversary by reflecting on the work of an artist who challenges and inspires us to reflect not only on how far we have come, but who commands us to think about where we want to go now, Campt said during the conference We have yet to see racial equity on a global or national scale. We have to reevaluate how good we are willing to be for each other and redefine, failure, success and all of America. These needed changes, needed love are in doubt. Many people, that read more and are better at loving than I am, know we should follow black feminists into love

We've got loads of amazing, amazing Black female filmmakers in this country. I would like to see them lifted up. Black Lives Matter was started by three Black women. Black women have long held the answer for systemic change because we are affected by misogyny and racism equally. We need to make sure that cinema is a safe space for Black women I do not see Doris Payne as a diva, since she is not a singer but I do see her as a cunning black woman with self-conviction.

Again we find opposites: Man/Woman, black/white, Yin and Yang. They play with the satellite dishes, they touch the earth, they hold hands.

The artist's speculative, immersive installations and proposals for community spaces adopt a radical architecture, echoing Tina Campt's call for a Black futurity as 'an attachment to a belief in what should be true, which impels us to realize that aspiration.'

Woodson, Anna Julia Cooper, and C.L.R. James, whose pioneering historical and theoretical work in black feminism, anticolonialism, and the study of slavery in the Americas paved the way for the emergence of black studies as a formal academic discipline in the late-1960s and laid down a kind.

Christina Sharpe there is a novel by Tina Campt known as listening to pictures. She invites us to hear such mundane, driven photographs, where we may hear something similar to black denial, or desire, that is to say you may find in them the dynamics of black existence The book also contextualises the lives of Black women within the gaze not only of white society, but of Black men, some of whom were like in the work of Dionne Brand, Maggie Nelson, Hazel Carby or Tina Campt.

Sample quote: If you want to know what the undercommons wants, what Moten and Harney want, what black people, indigenous peoples, queers and poor people want, what we (the 'we' who cohabit in the space of the undercommons) want, it is this - we cannot be satisfied with the recognition and acknowledgement generated by the very system that denies a) that anything was ever broken and b. This mixture of art, commerce, and racial politics resulted in a rich visual legacy that is vividly on display in Blue Notes in Black and White.Beyond illuminating the aesthetic power of these images, Cawthra ultimately shows how jazz and its imagery served a crucial function in the struggle for civil rights, making African Americans proudly, powerfully visible
Well, it's that whole idea around black excellence that came up in hip-hop: we're going to fight each other over who's the best but we're all going to be here. It's a different ego formation. It's not the lack of the ego, which would then put us into this collective model. It's not that. I'm not interested in that, personally We see theaters nurturing white artists, It was about changing the whole apparatus around how a theater company and evaluate shows through a white gaze. The Black audience isn't.
Black artists play an important role in helping us to understand the practice of refusal, and to envision strategies for living otherwise. This collaborative humanities seminar brings together the theorization of refusal with its enactments in contemporary art through a series of conversations with artists whose work enacts the refusal in radical and innovative forms Last month, we spoke about the importance of women speaking their truth in their music, so that we can reduce the chances of being ignored and have our voices heard when we are mistreated by society. When you listen to an artist like PrettyBoy D-O you get the same feeling, a strong burst of adrenaline coursing through you and filling you with so much confidence and assertion
