Artist In Residence

Activism, Art, Exhibition, Installation, Story

I have some exciting news to share!!  The Center on Contemporary Art Gallery and Shunpike have invited me to participate in their new Storefronts (UN)Contained Residency, designed to  support socially engaged artists from a variety of disciplines for whom art and activism are inextricably linked.  I am so honored to be in the company of such accomplished artists!!   

Anastacia-Renee Tolbert is Seattle’s Civic Poet.  Her literary and immersive installation “Do you see what you steal?” is a visual and literary response to gentrification, appropriation, and the multilayered and systemic death of the black woman.

Juliana Kang‘s work explores power dynamics in society. Their work “Han San,” which is Korean for “One Mountain”, is a site-specific installation composed of small, colorful fabric pieces and scaffolding in the formation of a large mound.

As this is my first ever site-specific installation, ideas are percolating about how I might best make use of this shipping container.  My piece — The Truth Has No Borders –will explore themes of identity, belonging, cultural inheritance and legacy.
