First, the curator stewards the story that needs to be told. We center transnational Black Indigenous feminist praxis in our work, with the understanding that Black and Brown have been forced to be transnational. We carry memories of nations inside our bodies and artists often carry those memories in their work. Our independent curation roots in academic and artistic research making it holistic in the outcome and storytelling.
Next, we create the world of the story through visual, material, performance, mix-media, etc art form. Our curation style centers conversations between the local and the global. We center artist whose values are rooted in land-base work, black feminist / womanist practices, indigenous knowledge, or queer technologies. This could be in the materials, the topic, or personal values that we believe inherently show up in their work.
