Following numerous conversations over many years about the lack of substantive critique of the work of Black artists, curators, art writers and theorists, and how few opportunities there are for formalised, developmental support in the arts sector, Aurella Yussuf founded Kitchen Table Crit in 2019.

Kitchen Table Crit is a space for participants to focus closely, talk and think together critically and expansively about work they have in progress, or the work of others that they are grappling with.

A core group attend the monthly sessions, and new participants join upon approval of the host. We welcome participants at any stage of their career, who work in any artistic medium.
