Know You Are History

Born and Razed: Young Voices

I am curating a show in November in Washington, DC. I encourage all artist under 25 to apply with existing work or to create work around the theme. Use your creativity to critique the word we live in and #knowyourehistory


The last words said by Black youth murdered by policemen.

Njideka Akunyili | The Beautiful Ones #1b [alternative take] & Nwantinti [along two details], both 2012.

"It was a layering of multiple interests. Obviously my love for Nigeria where I was born, my love for my life here, my love for my husband.. and just try to figure out a way the two kinda exist in a harmonious way.”

"I think of my work as capturing the very ordinary. Just normal.. everyday stuff. I think there is something beautiful and powerful in the things that happen daily. Intimate situations.. sensual situations.. these [situations] people don’t get to see. I think there is a beauty in that I’m very attracted to.. that I try to get out.”
