Deborah Roberts In Conversation with Ekow Eshun
Deborah Roberts is joined in conversation by writer and curator Ekow Eshun, to discuss her current solo exhibition, 'I have something to tell you' at Stephen Friedman Gallery until 23 July.
Simultaneously powerful and vulnerable, heroic and insecure, Roberts’ subjects reveal how systemic racism, gender politics and western beauty standards shape the way Black children grow up. This exhibition features new paintings dominated by black backgrounds and some of the largest works the artist has ever made. Amongst the references that inform the series are prominent incidents of racism in the UK, including the recent case of Child Q.
