Episode seventeen | jamaal barber

In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Jamaal Barber: printmaker, curator, collaborator, podcast host, grad student, husband, and father. Barber offers his insights into what it takes to become a successful artist, his own personal story of taking the leap from weekend art fairs to full time artist, and his print practice making work about all aspects of black life in America. He also gives us a look into this current exhibition 400: A Collective Flight of Memory (on display in the Aviation Community Culture Center in Atlanta through 15 July 2019) in which Barber has collaborated with 22 artists as a reflection on the collective black experience during the 400 years since the first slave ships arrived off the coast of Virginia in 1619.
