Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC

July 24-Nov 27, 2021

Curated by Emily Stamey

"The Weatherspoon is pleased to announce the 46th presentation of Art on Paper. A time-honored museum tradition, the exhibition features the work of artists who demonstrate the breadth of ways in which one can deploy the humble media of paper to extraordinary ends. From quiet observations amid quarantine, to surreal reflections on hybrid identities, to probing inquiries into the historical roots of racism, the artworks in this year’s installation offer us not only compelling images but creative entry points into urgent conversations.

After a one-year postponement, I'm grateful to have finally arrived at MASS MoCA for a one-month residency through Assets for Artists. A few pictures of new works, in progress.

I am honored to be one of five artists awarded this grant, a collaboration between The Yale University Art Gallery and Artspace New Haven. With this support and funding, I plan to produce a body of work focused on the role of digital technology in art-making and art-viewing experiences, especially as we emerge from a year of intense digital immersion due to the pandemic.
