Parker recently contributed to the latest edition of our very own Bazaar Art issue where she sat down with Rachel Jones, creator of the edition’s front cover to discuss her motivations, her practice and the messages of her art, as well as the unique challenges of being a Black female artist.

Parker also co-curated “War Inna Babylon”, the critically acclaimed exhibition at the ICA which chronicled the impact of various forms of state violence and institutional racism targeted at Britain’s Black communities since the mass arrival-upon-invitation of West Indian migrants in the late 1940s.
