These images are from the Shift catalog, an exhibition I was apart of the with the San Francisco Arts Commission. To say it was a lot of work would be an understatement, thankfully the catalog portion (on my end at least) was a piece of cake. Travis Somerville, David Huffman and myself had the task of finding a person we would like to be in conversation with about the themes in our work. I was stumped on who to ask, a few names came to mind but none of them worked with the subject matter I happen to work with. Then out of the blue the comedian W. Kamau Bell came barreling into my mind, he's a comic and at the time had a solo show called "The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Rascism in About an Hour", which was hilarious. You got two tickets for the price of one if you came with a person of a different race. Kamau's investigation into humor and race made him the perfect person for me to be in conversation with. I'm very thankful he accepted.
(Soon after our conversation took place Kamau announced he would be hosting his own show "Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on the FX network.)
