Doing The Work With Jon & Jarrett Key

The marriage between art and activism has been impactful in addressing social injustices and flawed cultural structures in nearly every modern political movement. From photojournalism to protest songs, to picket signs, to paintings depicting civil unrest, art has the power to evoke visceral reactions and in the best case scenario, serve as a call-to-action to those who consume it.

Twin brothers and creative mavens Jon & Jarrett Key exemplify this kind of power through their extensive and complex work that exists simultaneously in the art world and within their personal community. We chatted with them about their background of being prodigal scholarship kids from the deep south to game-changing multidisciplinary artists who’ve created space for QTPOC creatives in an effort to expand and take ownership over their narratives.
