RE: Artist as Medium allows for a deeper consideration of concepts related to Gala Porras-Kim’s exhibition, Correspondences towards the living object. The evening roundtable discussion is guided by Ronald Young, a St. Louis-based artist whose work builds on the tradition of power objects made by African and African Diasporic artists—objects that may contain or transmute spirits. In June, Young led a workshop in which participants pursued the sourcing and creation of a power object using found materials. Their work serves as subject matter for this broader, public conversation, in which we consider how artists create, imagine, and conjure the voices of objects.
