Come What May

So you want to become an artist? That’s a question Shantell Martin has faced her entire life. In this four-part series, Martin offers an intimate portrait of her world, revealing how a queer, mixed-race girl from a South East London council estate evolved into one of the most exciting, global artists of our time. Through a blend of original artwork, rarely seen archival footage and in-depth interviews, each episode explores a formative stop in her globe-spanning journey: from an artist reckoning with tuff childhood to a visual jockey in Tokyo’s night clubs to an acclaimed New York artist with solo exhibitions in institutions such as the Albright Knox Gallery and collaborations with the likes of Google, Puma and Kendrick Lamar.
