Liz Ikiriko (independent curator, photo editor and graduate student) and Andrew Hunter (Art Gallery of Guelph Senior Curator) introduce themselves and the Black Lives Rooted program, a series of interviews conducted in January and February of 2018 and broadcast on CFRU 93.3 - University of Guelph campus and community radio. Originally commissioned by the UofG's Office of Diversity and Human Rights and Black Student Association as a collaboration with the Art Gallery of Guelph.
"Rooted to our families, to our hidden histories and our present day place in Canada. The Art Gallery of Guelph’s podcast series Black Lives Rooted explores the creative practices of black intergenerational, emerging to established artists, curators and scholars as we look back at our absented presence, to the current space we inhabit. The series carries forward our known, studied and felt experiences, providing a platform to anchor on the course ahead." - Liz Ikiriko
