Featured Artist – Jamal Gerald

Performance artist Jamal Gerald makes his moving image debut with Let’s Walk, a short film made for Random Acts Network Centre North which explores how two different people – one male and black, and one female and white – have different experiences of privilege.

Jamal Gerald is a performance artist based in Leeds. His work is conversational, socially conscious, a celebration of individuality and focuses on identity and lived experiences. His work has been shown at SPILL Festival of Performance, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Homotopia, Queer Contact and Battersea Arts Centre.

Jamal and Let’s Walk will be debuting at IBT17 Bristol International Festival 2017 as part of Live Art &…, a rolling programme of short films, video documentation and images reflecting recent histories of Live Art in the UK.
