Today’s episode Dario sits with art curator, writer, and social activist Kimberly Drew. Hailing from Orange, New Jersey, Drew was taught by her parents to trust her own voice at an early age. In a family full of creatives, this lesson was fortuitous of Kimberly’s career in the arts. Her words and voice have served to shape a new canon of Black contemporary art and question who and what are worthy of being valued in our nation’s most lauded museums and cultural backdrops.
In today’s conversation, Kimberly shares how she cultivates community through art, what she’s learning about the vulnerability of rage, and why she’s able to speak her truth with such determined power. It’s a conversation where Kimberly gives Dario permission to be messy with his own process.
