Writing in the Margins workshop, Project Row Houses, 2015
Writing in the Margins is a reading/writing workshop presented in three parts. It explores texts often relegated to the margins, such as footnotes, lists, diagrams, manifestos, and others primarily by writers of color. The workshop frames these modest forms as sites for experimentation and transformation. A few questions to be explored: How can small texts become active spaces for creativity? How can poetry explore dissent in content and in form? What does it mean to write text on the margins? How can diaspora inform form?
Thinking in New Arts Infrastructures, part of charge practicum, Art League Houston, 2014
Why in order for things to be successful do they need to be endless? How do we develop arts infrastructures that are more holistic? How can an institution be structured as a living, breathing model/ organism? How can an institution be healing and energizing? How can we develop infrastructures that embrace uncertaintly, failure, or pauses? What are some economic models that are more sustainable and attainable?
Space is the Place, Diaspora Vibe Gallery, 2008
A group exhibition of time-based art by artists based in Miami and throughout the U.S., from the Latin American, Caribbean, and African Diasporas. Featuring time-based art genres including video, installation, sound, and performance, Space is the Place featured new artworks that reside primarily in the memory, as opposed to more concrete and tangible art forms. Curated by Ayanna Jolivet Mccloud, Space is the Place examined the move by many artists to locate meaning in ephemerality, and the social and cultural implications.
Artists included Jamilah Abdul-Sabur, Denenge Akpem, Rosemary Berríos, Bibi Calderaro, Odie Rynell Cash, Patrick de Castro, Diana-Sofia Estrada, Fulana (Lisandra Ramos-Grullón, Juan Griego, Cristina Ibarra, Andrea Thome, and Marlène Ramírez-Cancio), Inge Hoonte, Claudia Joskowicz, Rosamond S. King, Lara Stein Pardo, Dinorah de Jesús Rodríguez , Jorge Rojas, Elizabeth Ross, Talking Head Transmitters (Eugenia Vargas Pereira and Odalis Valdivieso), Michelle Tupko, Carolina Vasquez, and Russell Watson.
