Panel discussion

Setting the Record Straight deals with legacies of artist Julius Eastman (1940–1990), the queer African-American avant-garde composer, pianist, vocalist and conductor, and Amy Ashwood Garvey (1897–1969), political activists. Their pioneering and important work has been revived in the new artworks by The Otolith Group, The Third Part of the Third Measure (2017), and Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa in Carrying Yours and Standing Between You (2018). The panel included a moderated Q&A with the audience moderated by Emily Pethick.
