Race Cardsevent • 12 Oct 2018 – 14 Oct 2018
Selina Thompson's Race Cards comes to Site Gallery.
A room containing 1000 questions about race, written by artist and performance maker Selina Thompson in three sittings across 24 hours one weekend in Edinburgh. You’re invited to answer one of them.
65. Are you black, or are you ‘new black’?
170. What is the long term psychological impact of white supremacy on people of colour?
220. My mum does not talk about race any more. It makes her uncomfortable, tired. Will this happen to me?
‘The work isn’t about answering questions; it’s about igniting an internal discussion in each of us that allows for the possibility of self-awareness, analysis and reflection.’ – Harold Offeh, This is Tomorrow.
Race Cards is hosted in the container on Pinball Park, opposite Site Gallery.
