Author

I am scholar/artist and the current John Walsh Fellow at the Yale University Art Gallery.  I hold a Doctorate in American Studies and Ethnicity from the University of Southern California (USC) and a Certificate in Visual Studies, also from USC.

My work explores how direct address art made in the 1970s through the current moment has intervened in spectator relationships in contemporary art museums.  I use the work of contemporary visual artists of color to examine practices of viewing and matrices of power, in which social forces such a gender and race are seen as interpellations of a particular political subject—the art spectator.

This blog will serve an a site for intellectual and artistic “play,” as I will use this space to introduce new creative works, as well as random musings on art and life.

*This blog is not intended to be read as “academic writing.” In fact, perhaps the opposite. I compose most of these blogs on iPad, on phone, and/or in transit. Blog posts are loose personal ramblings. Some may contain silly errors. I appreciate you taking the time to read. Your generosity is undeserved, but much appreciated.

    Do you not have a follow button for a reason? I’d like to follow because I’ll never remember to go look. I’m into fragrance free/chemical free old fashioned recipes for housecleaning for and almost everything in our daily lives.

      Hmm I do have a follow button, I wonder why it is not visible for you. If you are wordpress you can always follow at the top of any page as well. Keep me posted and I’ll do my best to troubleshoot 🙂 thanks for visiting
