The Empowering

The Empowering: a social justice show was curated by Danielle Scott.

Curator’s Statement: The Empowering was born to help us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful and more human. I wanted viewers to feel our history, all of it and every shade – our pain, our darkness and our light. This exhibition depicts the depths of the artist’s heart, mind, soul and spirit. Art is not always about pretty things. It’s about who we are, what happened to us, and how our lives were affected. My vision and selection process came from Nina Simone’s quote, “An artist duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times and that is to me the definition of an artist.”  The Empowering is giving voices to those who have been silenced for far too long. Danielle Scott, January 2021

AND I won 3rd prize and a 2022 solo show at for The Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, NJ.

Victor Davson had this to said about my piece…

The hanging/sculpture, Caribbean Friendship Bracelet, made of cotton rope, yarn, chenille and sari silk is a power object encoded with histories of cultural hegemony, indentureship, racial violence, the fight for freedom and solidarity fomented in the crucible of colonial rule.
