Cousin Dee & I took a quick little road trip to NYC this past weekend for a needed break and to attend José Vilson’s, “This Is Not A Test” book launch.
The trip was hype. Ate at some of my favorite spots, discovered some new spots, kicked it with great people, took a lot of damn pictures.
Best of all, I was able to check out the Carrie Mae Weems exhibit at the Guggenheim and the Black Eye pop up exhibit in TriBeCa, where I had a very unique interchange with the exhibit’s curator, the beautiful, Nicola Vassell.
Interestingly enough, Carrie Mae Weems and Black Eye contributor Rashid Johnson have given me inspiration to do a series of introspective photos of myself that will most likely be centered around my body, my vulnerability intersected with cultural identity to share a narrative that will hopefully push me further as an artist. We’ll see how this plays out…
