The Summer 2016 X-TRA includes my review of Disguise: Masks and Global African Art at the Fowler Museum at UCLA. Thinking through the implications of Fanon’s racial critique in the aftermath of globalization, I consider cultural specificity as it manifests within groupings of artists of color across borders.
I’ve been elected to the board of directors of the College Art Association for a four-year term, with intent to represent part-time faculty interests and to promote partnerships with non-profit curators and other academic-adjacent arts professionals. Read about my platform at Adjunct Commuter Weekly.
Recent interviews include a round-table on Artsy, “Can Art Change the Future for Racial and Ethnic Identity?” with Ryan Wong and Jessica Lynne, moderated by Ellen Yoshi Tani, and an interview for Brainard Carey for Yale University Radio WYBCX in April about my curatorial and writing work.
