Zora J Murff In Conversation with Ekow Eshun, 17 February 2022

Zora J Murff and Ekow Eshun

In Conversation

Thursday 17th February | 18:30 GMT

Against the backdrop of our current exhibition ‘At No Point In Between’, and on the occasion of the new book 'True Colors (or, Affirmations in a Crisis)' published by Aperture, we are excited to announce Zora J Murff will be joined for a discussion with writer, curator and broadcaster Ekow Eshun.

'True Colors (or, Affirmations in a Crisis)' is a chronicle of survival by trailblazing artist Zora J Murff. Murff constructs a manual for coming to terms with the historical and contemporary realities of America’s divisive structures of privilege and caste. In 2020, Zora J Murff was the recipient of the inaugural Next Step Award, a partnership between Aperture and Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York, with the generous support of 7|G Foundation. His exhibition at Baxter St this past fall titled “Bold As Brass (or, Third Year Review)” and his publication with Aperture, True Colors (or, Affirmations in a Crisis), is the result of the inaugural Next Step Award.

An IRL event hosted at WEBBER gallery in partnership with Aperture. Numbers are limited, please RSVP to
