Aruna D’Souza & Tomashi Jackson

Aruna D’Souza & Tomashi Jackson

Aruna D’Souza’s new book Whitewalling: Art, Race & Protest in 3 Acts—reflecting on three exhibitions at the Met, Artists Space, and the Whitney that shook the art world—asks the question: When we speak of artistic freedom and freedom of speech, who, exactly, is free to speak? Artist Tomashi Jackson joins D’Souza in conversation.
