Meghan, for #facenewyork (link in bio): “Because you don't understand the implications of what's going on around you, because you don't get that you're homeless, because there's no language around it when you're a kid, it's like this weird magical space where you're with a lot of other children. Don't get me wrong, it's an incredibly traumatic experience, but it's also an experience where you have a really big community in the shelter, and there's a lot of joy. But that's a child's experience of homelessness. The homelessness in my youth was all tied to my mother's addiction. Then, as I got older, I went to live with my grandparents and my father. When I started coming out towards my junior and senior year, that was when I couldn't live with them anymore, because they were really strict Irish Catholics. They essentially told me I could not come back. So I ended up living with my friends, with my high school English teacher. Then I got to college and had my first girlfriend. Something that I'm working on is not allowing my relationships to be home for me. Because what you end up doing is building homes in other things and other people, which is a really dangerous thing to do. When you grow up without a home, you hold on to people. In my apartment right now in Brooklyn, this is the longest I've ever lived anywhere in my life, which is two full years. It's exciting, but I don't think I'll ever get rid of the feeling of impermanence. As an adult looking back at these experiences, I think about how easy it is to slip back into that system. Had it not been for the scholarship program that got me into NYU, I don't know how I'd have gotten out.” @pleasedonotfeedtheducks @topicstories

Precious, by @harryhancockart (link in bio) #facenewyork : “Homelessness makes a lot of people look down on you. I don't know if I'm the face of homelessness but I am a face of homelessness. My education didn't save me. My businesses didn't save me. My addiction brought me further and further down. So I am a face of homelessness, and it can happen to anybody. If you read the New York Times you'll know that people are a paycheck or two away from it. I'm a real person that this happened to. I'm not ashamed… I'm Precious- that's who I am. And like the phoenix, I will rise again, just like I always do. I don't want it to be forgotten that I'm human and there’s something wonderful about being beautifully human. There are people in penthouse apartments who have no idea who their friends are. Who are spiritually homeless. I'm not spiritually homeless. I know who I am. And that's beautiful.” @topicstories

Bre, by @leeumrulez for #facenewyork (link in bio):
“I was making it seem like I was this free spirit living on the edge, when really I was terrified. Terrified that I would grow up, become an adult, and I would fail. It seemed that everything responsible I tried to do ended up in failure. I tried to go to college. I failed. I've had several apartments. And then I made it to the point that everyone told me that I needed to make it to. I had an apartment and a stable job in Chicago. And I didn't feel like I had accomplished anything. I came to New York because I’m a writer and I always knew that New York would be the place to take off from. Somehow my plans fell completely apart. A house of cards. One big blow and everything was gone, and all I had was a suitcase. But in homelessness I found freedom. In some strange way. I needed to hit rock bottom to see my life for what it really was. “ @topicstories

Pamela, by @michellelim_art for #facenewyork - Pamela loves Botticelli, so Michelle painted her as “Primavera”, egg tempera and all. I was so moved by their instant connection. “I grew up in the Bronx. I've lived in California, Connecticut, Florida... New York is where I feel most like my true self. For a long time I was in drug addiction. Going through this journey has taught me that I want to help people with my career. The job that I want- being a paramedic - I know that it's going to be hard and dangerous, but its something that I'm drawn to because my life and the way that I've been living is so dangerous. I feel like now being in a position where I can help people in their danger is going to help me feel like I'm redeemed from all of the things that I went through. Peace and happiness for me is sitting outside and feeling the sun on my skin. Having a moment of silence.” More at topic.com, link in bio 👆🏼

Anitha, for #facenewyork (link in bio): “I lost my apartment because of high rent. At age 50 I had medical expenses. My cats had to go with someone else. I had to go to a shelter. I started looking for work. I found a good job and educated myself. I went to places that gave classes and went back into the workforce. But the jobs I would get would only be temporary... 6 months to 8 months, and then I would end up having nothing again. And I had to rebuild and start over. Along the way I learned how to cook and I loved it. I would like to have my career in cooking. I would love to become an executive chef at Tavern on the Green.
I think that homelessness affects anybody. I don't think you need to be on some substance abuse to become homeless. Sometimes you can lose your job, you can lose your apartment, you can lose your family. And you can be so devastated that you don't know what to do. You haven't done anything wrong. You're just trying to rebuild your life, trying to stand again.” @bowerymission @topicstories @tavernonthegreen

Leslie, by @okadasatoshistudio for #facenewyork (link in bio): “Don't judge a book by its cover, because you never know what a person has been through. Prior to being homeless, I worked for the attorney general. I had good jobs. I started working at 12 years old. But the drugs... I ran into a guy with fast money, and didn't have to work, everything was provided. So I was exposed to the drug life, and got caught up in the life I was exposed to. Crack is so powerful, you get that high that one time, and you never get it again. So you're chasing that high. It was rough being out on the streets, because you never knew who you were going to bump into. I thought I was going to die on the streets. But God said no. And he gave me a second chance at life. I've been clean for 27 years. I got my children back, I went to school. Got my first masters. I'm working on my second masters, to get my MSW. I'm currently working with homeless men. I have a population of 177 men and I have the daunting task of making sure they have housing and that they are treated with dignity. Every now and then I have to give myself a refresher course. Because you can become numb to the pain, numb to the way the some people are living, and then I have to remind myself, Leslie you used to be a homeless woman too, so if there was hope for you, there's hope for them.”

@dzandujyawa ‘s performance yesterday was one of the most beautiful and moving I’ve seen. If you can find a way to see Jaimé perform, do it!
More about the piece below:
mud diggn’: she has always been here - sea “mud diggn' is a series of movement meditations around the state of black women’s mental health and the ways in which we heal and take care, in the face of systematic oppression. it’s a movement meditation on a vertical prayer and a old/new prescription. this is a testimony to the value of ancestral knowledge, transformation, reclaiming, and honoring one’s ability to re-remember their gifts and to bring it forward. what is the new/old pattern of love you are sowing for future generations?”

Opening Reception Sunday, January 21st, 2018 4PM - 6PM
Corridor Gallery, 334 Grand Ave. Brooklyn
In partnership with Rush Arts, we are excited to present An Ode to Healing: A Poetic Exhibition for those in Recovery. Curated by Minkie English, this exhibition will be at Corridor Gallery.
As we journey through life we are forced to face, or hide, our wounds. Our traumas, which are the results of physical and psychopathological phenomena threatens our mind, body, and spirit-our wholeness and existence-leaving us unbalanced, even on a cellular level.
Healing is about connectivity, physically and/or meta-physically. It is our reconciliation of our ephemeral and unforgiving reality. Healing and its complexities can be arduous at times and undeniably poetic during others. It is an ode to our existence and our presence in the here-and-now. Like an ode, healing is an exalted and inspiring journey guided intensely by emotions. It is the light that enters the wound, 'fostering positive opportunities for self-knowledge, growth and resilience'. An Ode to Healing: A Poetic Exhibition for Those in Recovery is a lyrical poem for those in recovery from the challenges they are forced, and/or choose, to face; recognizing and celebrating the process of achieving wholeness. Eight artists-five visual artists and three performance artists-whose work has continued to uplift and heal others are featured in this exhibition. They are visual artists John Paligaro, Steven Cogle, Kelly Niceley, Allie Wilkinson, and Mona Kamal; and performance artists Damali Abrams, Brittany Williams, and Tsedaye Makonnen.
