"My Favorite Things" with Seattle Art Museum

JAN 3 2019, SEATTLE ART MUSEUM, THIRD FLOOR GALLERIES

The good people at Seattle Art Museum invited me to curate and lead a My Favorite Things Tour during the city-wide First Thursday Art Walk. My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most fascinating artists, cultural producers, and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.

Thanks to Seattle Art Museum for having me, David Rue for facilitating, and everyone who joined my tour. I had a great time sharing my perspective —on themes of blackness, self-acceptance and the power of women reclaiming our own narratives and agency over our bodies—and how the pieces I chose relate to them.
