Lindsey Mendick / Alberta Whittle / Sekai Machache
In a world that’s extracting itself from the doldrums whereas going through the dispiriting prospect of “winter is coming” à la Sport of Thrones, I look to artists to create new narratives, problem the established order, and ask questions that all of us really feel too weary to boost.
