Jacob V Joyce

Jacob V Joyce leads a roundtable on how illustration has been and continues to be a tool for decolonising, queering and subverting hegemony.

The RA exhibition From Life celebrates drawing and looks at its ongoing relationship with artists today. Spring-boarding from their personal illustration practice and the work of other illustrators, Jacob V Joyce will facilitate a roundtable discussion centred around the practice of drawing. They will discuss how illustration can archive and illustrate radical imagination and be a powerful tool for political change; from afro-futurist explorations of cruising culture to archival projects and satirical clap backs.

This event invites audiences to participate in a round-table discussion in the General Assembly Room. We encourage ticket holders to bring thoughts, perspectives to share with the group.
