During the fall of 2017 Knockdown Center hosted an interdisciplinary art installation in collaboration with the Coalition of Hispanic Family Services featuring the art work of 1300 young people and select family members. All work focused on the immigrant experience of Donald Trump’s proposed immigration policy.
Also in the aftermath of Trump’s election, Knockdown Center organized an exhibition entitled Nasty Women. This exhibit featured a scaffold made in the shape of the letter N A S T Y W O M E N, on which more than one thousand female and femme artists hung object based artwork. I participated with the Knockdown Center team in organizing a 4 day long performance and music festival surrounding the exhibition. Nasty Women has been one of Knockdown Center’s most successful, visible, and celebrated activations to date.
You Are Here (aka the maze)
My first ever program with Knockdown Center, was producing the festival I participate in lead, You Are Here (aka the maze). The performance and time based arts festival takes place in a life size maze installation designed by the art duo Trouble (of which I am a member).
