About the event
To launch the fourth issue of MICE Magazine, guest-editors Pamela Edmonds and Mark V. Campbell discuss the issue's theme 'Opacities' with special guest contributors. Issue Four: OPACITIES brings forth a conversation between artists, writers, and curators about opacity as a primary aesthetic form in which blackness is performed. The idea of opacity emerges both as a strategy of active resistance and empowerment envisioned as an alterity that breaks down the hierarchies of global art, working against the logic of recognition and the ocular bias of Eurocentrism.
