I hope you can make it. I'm co-curating this with my MAMBU BADU ladies and we have received some truly beautiful, brilliant, and thought-provoking work. Can't wait to share this with you.

The Vanguard




It's alive! I officially launched this site last week and wanted to take the time to talk about it a bit here.

I first started this project way back in October 2011. It came about mainly due to my curiosity about other artists' practices and processes, and my desire to have the kind of conversations about art and artmaking that are difficult to have once you leave school and have other obligations to attend to.

Holding these conversations and creating this archive has been tremendously helpful for understanding my own approach to my work, and I hope these interviews and photos help give others insight as well.

This has truly been a labor of love and I'm really excited to share this.

Selected works from The District are currently on view at the National Institutes of Health, West Alcove Gallery from now through May 2nd!

Do stop by. Also, 20% of all sales proceeds go toward the NIH patient fund, so if you buy a print, not only will you be supporting a young, emerging artist (that is, moi), you'll also be supporting a great health-related cause.

Special thanks to Fitzgerald Fine Arts for this wonderful opportunity.
