I cannot wait for this work to exist in the world.
Crip Algebra is opening at Current Space in Baltimore on the 27th of April. This show is particularly close to my heart as I’m showing with two of my great crip loves, Alx Velozo and Saar Shemesh. Thank you to both of them for doing so much admin, install etc. to make this show happen.
One Day I Will Feel My Power is an event held by the ICA and streamed online by Wysing Arts Centre, as part of Things I Have Learned The Hard Way: a multi-site celebration of the life and work of Lizzy Rose (1988 – 2022) taking place from Fri 31 March – Sun 23 April 2023.
Lizzy Rose was an incredible friend and artist, and I miss her a lot. Thank you to the wonderful Leah Clements also for this labour of true love.
