You Are Enough Art Show

I will be showing Psych/Ick Ward, a crazy queer protection spell  (that we survive) conjured in collaboration with Clio Thatcher Sady At SOMArts!   Opening June 3rd, 2017 along with several amazing shows as a part of the National Queer Arts Festival!  

"You Are Enough is a visual arts show that calls forth our strategies of resistance, radical self-love, and breaking the silence in order to shirk off the shame associated with Crazy. This shame demands our very lives as sacrifice, but we have the power, though collective voices, to banish it. Artists name and reclaim our Crazy to become more fully embodied and more recognizable to ourselves and one another."

Esquire features Hex the Patriarchy

Inadvertantly. 

The homepage of Esquire, one of the biggest men's magazines in the country featured this photo of an activist wearing a Hex the Patriarchy Tshirt (Designed by myself and Lacey Johnson  btw) facing off against  fascists and nazis during a failed conservative rally in Berkeley.   I mean, I can  clearly see its our design.  And I think it means the Hex is working.

Hex Work Group Show

The group formerly known as DIY MFA Bay Area invites you to a visual art show exploring THE HEX as autonomous feminist magic.

We are re-imagining grassroots feminist responses to violence. Through self and community education, we are using an imagined lens: A hex as a spell for feminist autonomy and collective self defense. Each artist has explored what this means to them, presenting multiple interpretations of hexes as a vehicle for self determination, self defense, protection of self and community, transformative justice, time and place, cultural transformation, creative ways to respond to violence without using the prison system, and as a vehicle for self determination.

Please join us for the Opening October 19, 6-9pm.

With an artist Talk: October 29 2-4pm

The exhibition is at Qulture Collective October 10- Nov 1.
