The call from famed auction house Christie's came right in the middle of George Floyd protests. Destinee Ross-Sutton, a 24-year-old art curator based out of Brooklyn, New York, admits she was "a bit wary" at first. "Christie's reached out to one of the artists I worked with and he directed them to me," she told Business Insider. "Around the time of all the protests, [I was] a bit wary [about the outreach], but after talking to them, I realized they were really genuine about this a?? they wanted this to be the beginning of something good."Ross-Sutton is known for highlighting the work of Black artists, and her collaboration with Christie's led to the "Say It Loud a?¦" exhibit that showcased artwork from all over the African diaspora. It ran from July 31 to August 21 and helped to propel both Ross-Sutton and a collective of Black artists into the international spotlight.
