Curatorial

Institutional criticism from the eyes of a curator of color. What is the relationship of the artist to their point in time? How do space, privilege, and education play a role in curatorial practice? Relational chemistry of sorts. My practice is a representation of human identity and experience. Urban poetry shows the symmetry in humanity through the division of society. Similarities rooted in tradition, family, movement, and experience of the changing environment shaped by power and wealth, as well as imagination and labor layered with intertwined cultural and social histories. I believe my duty as a curator is bridging unchartered territories of artistic practice, insisting on its engagement with the everyday community, ultimately carving out its definitive place as a necessity for urban growth. Tackling key conversations through objects can make the attitude of advocacy go viral. It’s imperative for the continuation of a creative and expressive society.
