Hannah Traore Talks Artful Rebellion with UN Women in New York

On June 1, UN Women hosted Hannah Traore, Yvonne Apiyo Brändle-Amolo, and Justice Faith Betty for a panel on the power of “artivism.”

Guided by her mission to elevate the work of traditionally underrepresented artists, gallerist Hannah Traore has made a point of forging connections among a broader audience than just the city’s circle of creatives and collectors. On June 1, that mission took Traore all the way to the UN’s second session of the Permanent Forum on People of African Descent for a panel about the power of art as activism. Joined by Swiss Parliament member and grassroots organizer Yvonne Apiyo Brändle-Amolo for a conversation moderated by founder and entrepreneur Justice Faith Betty, Traore and Brändle-Amolo discussed the history and future of artist activism fueling transformative social change.
