Eulogy for the Living
You know what one of my least favorite phrases is: "it& #39;s too political," followed by, "it& #39;s racially charged." The people saying it are more often than not unaware of the place of privilege they're coming from to say that, as if being a person of color isn't an act of defiance every day.
Taja Lindley's work can not be translated to a single image, it is experiential and multi-layered. Here she stood outside her room as people flooded in and out. I loved the intensity of her peace, and the healing nature of her piece.
Spring/Break remains my favorite for giving these charged works a space to be seen, heard, experienced.
