Help Me Succeed At Columbia University

I'm very excited to share that I accepted an admissions offer to the MFA Visual Art program at Columbia University! 

I look forward to the opportunity to deepen my creative practice using art as a tool of social transformation. 

I launched a crowdsourcing campaign to raise funds for equipment + resources I need in order to be successful in graduate school. Please donate and share if your are able! Thank you!

Alt(e)ar at University of Pittsburgh

I'm presenting Alt(e)ar, a commissioned performance installation, at the Center for African American Poetry and Poetics at the University of Pittsburgh. In Alt(e)ar I embody an altar that honors the legacy of Black femme, gender non-conforming resistance. The performance installation includes a video and soundscape of unedited, archival footage from filmmaker Marlon Riggs. Visual artist Aya Rodriguez-Izumi created an original installation for the project.

Dates: 11 - 12 April 2017
Location: The Studio Theater @ The University of Pittsburgh, 4200 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15260
