She is currently working on an installation that will be displayed inside an industrial-caged trailer. This sculpture will be Round 14: Cage Match Project Austin, TX. Entitled “un(box),” it will be on view outside of the Museum of Human Achievement later this year (TBD). 

 

taylor barnes writes, “We, as Black people, are always placed in the position to teach instead of existing. I am humbled to be chosen to juror a show, creating a safe space of understanding and acknowledgment for us. This show is open to any who feel their work gives voice to their personal experiences, whether figurative, non-representational, text-based, image-based, and everything in between.

 

"I want you to know that even if you do not make it into this show, this is the time to apply to anything you want. The world has momentarily opened its eyes—jump on it. If this show calls to you, take this chance on yourself and apply. (I’m talking to the one Black girl in a sea of white eyes in the back. I see you.)”


Art Room will host a virtual opening reception for Sensibility: revealed truths, tensions, and vulnerability on October 15, 2020.
