A self-initiated residency, new body of work, artist-run exhibition, and public forum supported by a Queens Art Fund Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
Curator and writer Christian L. Frock invited me talk about my self-initated projects on her panel, SOS Artists: Strategies of Survival.
I will participate from the East Coast—sharing reflections, images, and a diagram. It should be an interesting dialogue—panelists include esteemed colleagues Jonn Herschend, Ernest Jolly, Favianna Rodriguez, and Stephanie Syjuco.
Over the moon about sharing this new project featuring activities by 29 artists.
Curated by Deborah Willis and Hank Willis Thomas, the exhibition brings together 16 innovative change-makers—as well as community activists, sociologists, scholars, and a physician—around social justice, collaboration, community, empowerment and activism.
