Description:

“By Way of Revolution” is an interdisciplinary art project that creates space for powerful dialogue and communion amongst BIPOC women identifying (cis, trans, gender non-conforming) people, who have historically served as overlooked yet vital assets within care politics and activist labor. The research based project utilizes video, performance, social engagement, collage, and sculpture to examine the impact of civil rights eras of the past on today’s social justice movements.

Documentation of a socially engaged art series 

2019


The Ready includes free community programs related to the By Way of Revolution series that are facilitated as a collaboration between myself and local women of color lead organizations. The events are related to the most pressing needs of their community, as interpreted by the organizations. During my recent exhibition at Michigan State University, ten events took place, including a People’s Assembly Brunch by Black Lives Matter of Michigan; a wellness retreat by NYC’s Harriet’s Apothecary; Black Student Union’s monthly meeting, and a performance workshop that I lead for the student group Sister Circle.
