FIRST FRIDAY OCTOBER:
Maya Lanae's art discusses the topics of race & gender, and how these two forces have shaped their life. By use of performance, painting, and poetry, Maya is able to question what it means to be black, queer, and agender in a way that captivates and informs the audience.
Rooted in portraiture, Clarissa's work is comprised of explorations of identity, the pathways of Internet culture and how it molds ones persona. In Moonless Night, Clarissa aims to display a certain tenderness between her relationship with collaborator Maya, and assert the feminist declaration of black femmes & queers to the front.
