Topher Campbell has announced plans to hold a screening of his new film, Basquiat Naked Walking and Me.
The short 20 minute silent film will be created to raise awareness of black men being wrongly stereotyped, imprisoned, and killed in the US, UK, and across the world.
The artist and activist walk naked through the streets of New York City “where Basquiat wrote all of his SAMO (same old shit) graffiti.”
Campbell adds in the video below: “My film is both a protest and a celebration the black body. My black body.
“My naked waking is inspired by the work of American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat who portrayed black people in all our beautiful, complex, humorous, and challenging ways.”
A screening of the walk will then take place at the Barbican Hall in London on 28 January, 2018.
However, Campbell needs your help to get the project completed with additional funding.
“Any contribution you can offer no matter how small or large would really help to make this project happen,” he said.
