Black and Brown Bodies Will Forever Dream and Exist

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through Nov. 19 2019

According to Malaya Tuyay’s website, her print and textile works address the mourning of her mother’s passing to “offer affirmation to others within the community who haven’t been given space to talk about the pain they hold.” Samantha Maria Xochitl Espinoza’s works carry a similar mission through the same mediums of print and textile. Referencing “historical trauma, border thoughts, brown queerness, and treatment of brown people in the United States,” her works “take up space and acts as a form of resistance.” Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo’s mixed-media works integrates text calling for the abolition of ICE and prisons. Sequoya Akosua Lee’s works integrates text expressing black and brown bodies in resistance. Both a declaration and a celebration, these artists show how to dream and exist.
