I’m excited to be included in the winter exhibition at School 33, titled Your silence will not protect you, curated by Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell.
The title references Audre Lorde’s seminal essay on activism, “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action.”
“Your silence will not protect you.” addresses many silences, both historic and contemporary. This multimedia exhibition explores subtle variances and correlations across a broad spectrum of experience for black womyn today. Considering contemporary tropes concerning black womyn’s bodies, the commercialization of blackness and the continued haunting of the American past, the five artists presented content with the status quo both in broad social terms, but also within hierarchical art world structures. Here, past is more than present—it is consciousness.
The exhibition will be on view from December 7, 2018 through February 2, 2019.
