Within the current social and political climate we’re found looking backward as a way to find answers for today's problems in America. “Oh, Maker” explores the work of 7 artists who through the act of re-appropriating materials are looking at the history of trauma on American Soil, the act of rebellion, as well the narrative of black women, and families. These artists are building on these conversations in their work. Using mix materials, visual language, and archives as a starting source to re-appropriate materials used to aid conversations about America today.

Museum Of Contemporary Art on INSTAGRAM (MOCA.IG)
(MOCA.IG) is a digital museum designated for the social Media Platforms Instagram, and Facebook. Formed from an interest in curating I formed (MOCA.IG) to play the role of a Fictional Museum, exploring and showcasing contemporary art work of the African, and Latinx Diaspora. Through This on going project I plan to offer a one week instagram take over (Residency) to one emerging artist or curator every month.
I think it's important to provide accessible art to art lovers. The work shown on (MOCA.IG) spans from photography, sculpture, performance, video, sound, painting, ceramic. etc
