This Is My Home (Too)

Organized by BRN GRL SPK

On Indigenous People's Day, I had the honor to show my work at the inaugural art show organized by BRN GRL SPK. BRN GRL SPK is a wonderful platform built by women of color, for women of color. Their mission: "a creative arts collective that focuses on creating spaces where women and femmes of color can speak their minds and affect change. We aim to empower and support BRN GRLs by building community, organizing events, and fundraising for progress."

About the Show:
Where is home? And what does it look like for immigrants, indigenous groups, and people of color? BRN GRL SPK presents This Is My Home (Too), an exhibit by women and femme artists of color. Their work examines our country’s complicated history with colonialism, slavery, and immigration -- asking what and where is home, who has historically had access to one, and how does that shape one’s identity today?

The collection is displayed in Caza Mezcal's gallery from October 9 - 28th.
Proceeds from the opening night will benefit Families For Freedom, a New York based human rights organization by and for families facing and fighting deportation.

Thanks to our sponsors:  BAX | Brooklyn Arts ExchangeTanteo TequilaGirl Power SupplyFREEda Women NYC, and Meta Balance.

Many thanks to all who attended and packed the Gallery at Casa Mezcal with so many funds going to Families for Freedom. A thousand thank you's to the wonderful women of BRN GRL SPK: Ugonna, Ally, Mariah and Ranjani. Immense gratitude to my friends who came to support my first NYC art show! Y'all are the best.
