As part of the Glasgow International 2018 Supported Programme, Many Studios has invited London-based collective sorryyoufeeluncomfortable to take residence at The Gallow Gate from 18 April — 20 May. sorryyoufeeluncomfortable is an arts collective that creates spaces for radical study, conversation and multi-disciplinary art-making.

(BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY? includes work from 6 Black artists, writers and makers: Christopher Kirubi, Halima Haruna, Rabz Lansiquot, Mayfly Mutyambizi, Imani Robinson & Jacob V Joyce. Artists will respond in lose or direct ways to the title question, for example, they may invert the question in order to ask: “What is white supremacy doing to you?”, or they may suggest that as Black artists, to make work of any subject matter, or of none at all, is to resist, to survive and to “do something”. The title (BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY? acts both as a refusal (you come here expecting me to tell you what to do, but I only show you my art and make you see what you already know) and an acknowledgement that we are forced to share our lives with white supremacy. The question looms and it persists… the question is tiresome… the question is discomforting.

The static exhibition will be supported by a programme of conversations, workshops and performances, exploring how these questions and provocations manifest in our lives and in our work. The programme will include the second iteration of SYFU’s Black Film, British Cinema programme of shorts, and a conversation with SYFU Founder and Mentor, artist Barby Asante about her project Baldwin’s Nigger: Reloaded.

(BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY? is curated by Imani Robinson and Rabz Lansiquot. The project is funded by Glasgow International and Many Studios.
