As a curator of color, I approach institutional criticism with a unique perspective. I explore the relationship between artists and their specific points in time, delving into how factors such as space, privilege, and education shape curatorial practices. I am particularly interested in the relational chemistry that exists within the art world. My curatorial practice is a reflection of human identity and experience. Through the lens of urban poetry, I showcase the symmetrical aspects of humanity, while also highlighting the divisions within society. I believe that commonalities are deeply rooted in tradition, family, movement, and the shared experiences of navigating an ever-changing environment influenced by power, wealth, imagination, labor, and intersecting cultural and social histories.
As a curator, I view it as my responsibility to bridge uncharted territories in artistic practice. I emphasize the importance of engaging with the local community on a day-to-day basis, carving out a definitive place for art as a vital component of urban growth. By addressing key conversations through artistic objects, I strive to make the attitude of advocacy spread widely and resonate with the public. I firmly believe that fostering a creative and expressive society is crucial for its continuous evolution and development.
