The artists represented in Body Language embody powerful, diverse acts of decolonial love in their works, in that they explore and express: forms of intimacy; loving relations with body, self, land, and kin; sexuality; gender; and the erotic. Further, individually and placed together, these works create spaces for decolonial loving languages and dialogue. I hope you will visit, and join the conversation. ♥
