Looking Back…


January is coming to a close! How is this possible? In any case, this is long overdue, but I figured I would look back at 2013 to re-invigorate and remind myself of what is possible in 2014!

January – Curated a solo exhibition for sound artist, musician, and composer David Molina at Asterisk SF Magazine + Gallery

February – Hosted a Wednesday Forum at the California College of the Arts with forum for the Visual and Critical Studies department with brilliant scholar Mabel O. Wilson

March – Had the pleasure of presenting on a panel at the Theorizing the Web 2013 conference and my recap of the event was published to Creative Applications Network ย and wrote features for artist and designer Kristin Neidlinger and Scott Kildall for Ideas Issue for Asterisk SF Magazine

April – Had the opportunity to get a review for Will Roganโ€™s exhibition Blanking Out at the Altman Siegal Gallery published to Daily Serving / Attended A Simple Collective Salon on New Media Arts in the Bay Area. This space is absolutely worth checking out. For a (physically) small space, founder and director Rhiannon MacFadyen has A LOT of big ideas and events happening in 2014.

May – WANT.HERE.YOU.NOW. exhibition at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts review published in Hyperallergic

September – Such a treat to see biological anthropologist present at the Being Human Conference 2013 on one of my favorite topicslove!

OctoberAF3IRM Congress and annual conference on transnational feminism in New York. I must say, it was a beautiful sight to see almost every face at the annual conference belonged to a womyn of color. Phenomenal.

November – I had the pleasure of co-presenting on panel with The Civic Beat (Ben Valentine and An Xiao Mina) at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts – Dissident Future Arts and Ideas Festival / Saw Janelle Monae at the Warfield with my high school best friend ~ Such a great night! / Berkeley South Asian Radical Activist History Walk with the AF3IRM SF Bay Area Chapter members
