Collaboration with the Smoke School of Art

I co-organized, with Christopher Hutchinson, a collaboration between our two collectives - tART and the Smoke School of Art (SSA). A Bad Question included a gallery exhibition at Wonderroot in Atlanta, an intersectional feminist symposium at the Atlanta-Fulton public library, an online exhibition and more.
During our time in Georgia, tART members were in residency at the beautiful home and studio of SSA member Julio Mejia in the mountains of Jasper, Georgia.

Learn more about the project at tART's website, and read a review of the exhibition by Catherine Rush for Burnaway.

Group Show at Columbia University's Wallach Art Gallery

My work is included in this group exhibition at Columbia University’s Wallach Art Gallery, on view April 22 through June 13, 2015:

a curious blindness reflects a moment captured by eighteen early- to mid-career artists who engage with the complex climate of race and identity politics. Despite their varied backgrounds and influences, there is a shared consciousness of how people of color are treated and represented in a purportedly post–racial era. The selection of works within the exhibition responds and reacts to the institutionalized racism that permeates the quotidian through media, consumer capitalism, and the art-historical canon. The artists are influenced by ideas of portraiture, seriality, and the consumable that evoke the ways in which the body of color has been objectified and abbreviated through time. 

a curious blindness is curated by Vivian Chui, Tara Kuruvilla, and Doris Zhao. It is the third presentation of MODA Curates—an annual opportunity offered by The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery and the MA in Modern Art: Critical and Curatorial Studies Program (MODA) for outstanding curatorial proposals related to students' theses.

Artists: Elia Alba, Firelei Baez, Suzanne Broughel, Ling Chun, Suntek Chung, Amir H. Fallah, Paula Garcia, Girl (Chitra Ganesh & Simone Leigh), Hassan Hajjaj, Nora Howell, Timothy Hyunsoo Lee, Ahmed Mater, Divya Mehra, Jayson Musson, Rashaad Newsome, Sondra Perry, Paul Anthony Smith
