This is a recording of a conversation between artists June Edmonds, Carla Jay Harris and Karla Diaz moderated by art critic, curator, and author Shana Nys Dambrot. The talk examines some of the conceptual, stylistic and thematic concerns these artists' explore and challenge in their works – such as a sense of place/belonging, a sense of memory/history, a sense of story/narrative, and a sense of color/tradition.
