And it has been a while yet again, since I last signed in to this blog to post something about Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter. And in the midst of another one of those climate change, global warming record breaking heatwaves that are taking place seemingly around the world these days, I find myself typing that, in an attempt to take a vacation, Black Lives Matter Art Show, or at least part of it, or at least as much of it that can get on a plane, is going to London. And I am excited to present my first international art show in London at Common House, a collectively managed space for radical groups, projects and community events in East London. Now I don't really have any photos of this Black Lives Matter Art Show Goes To London event to post yet, because I haven't really made it there yet, though that facebook event invite that I created for this event reads something like as follows:
Black Lives Matter | Carla Cubit of Occupy Art
Opening Reception & Performances: Saturday, August 3, 3-6pm at Common House.
A performance by Carla Cubit of Occupy Art and open mic followed by an Artist Talk & Discussion
