James Baldwin in his house in Saint-Paul de Vence

They Ring Like Revolutionary Tinnitus

5 Aug 2017

The sorryyoufeeluncomfortable collective (SYFU) was initiated in 2014 by artist Barby Asante and curator Teresa Cisneros, and began with a collective response to Horace Ove's film Baldwin's Nigger, resulting in a collaboration with Asante on her project Baldwin's Nigger Reloaded. Since this time, the collective has grown and evolved in shape, but retained a dialogue with the words and work of James Baldwin. As the activities of SYFU and their previous projects at the ICA are grounded in shared acts of reading and reflection, so forms of collective reading and learning recur throughout In formation.

They Ring Like Revolutionary Tinnitus is an opportunity to join SYFU collective and friends for a day of extended discourse on and with Baldwin’s writing, considering his influence on the practices of artists, writers and activists.
