Persisting Matters: An Artist Talk Series
Persisting Matters is a series of talks that places contemporary artists in conversation with scholars, curators, critics, and the public. The series is developed in the context of CIMA’s 2023-2024 exhibition Transatlantic Bridges: Corrado Cagli, 1938-1948, and is supported by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
Questions of gender, racism, political oppression, and resilience through art and community practices were central to Cagli’s work in the years of his exile from Italy, due to the country’s racial laws. Persisting Matters engages contemporary artists whose practices explore these pressing subjects in their individual contexts and prism.
Olujimi’s work challenges established modes of thinking that commonly function as “inevitabilities.” This pursuit takes shape through interdisciplinary bodies of work spanning sculpture, installation, photography, writing, video, and performance.
