TALK SERIES: POLITICS & THE POLITICIAN / REDEFINING MASCULINITY | AFROPUNK @ THE DEPARTMENT STORE
An exploration of modern Black masculinity. While Black men are under attack — battling social injustice, and facing higher risks of incarceration, health disparities, and early death, there is also a renaissance of Black male visibility, power and presence on the global stage. How do we reimagine male identity and dismantle systemic racial stereotypes to empower our communities?

About 198 Gallery
198 contemporary arts and learning’s mission is to nurture and support the career of emerging, under-represented artists and to advance public interest in the visual arts. Founded in 1988, 198’s motivation initially focused on the need to provide a platform for afro-caribbean and asian artists as part of the black arts movement. For nearly 30 years this work has evolved and continued to develop with projects that consider the work and study of emerging cultural identities, through exhibitions, workshops, education projects and critical debate with artists, thinkers, activists, young people and local and artistic communities. We advocate for diversity within the visual arts and provide opportunities for those wishing to develop careers in the creative and cultural industries.
