UTOPIA, digital zine, 2021
For my final project In Graphic Design I, at the Paris College of Art. In this zine, I used my own photos in collaboration with photos that my friends took of "everyday life" In Paris. I asked them to show me their version of utopia - utopia being a mindset and a feeling that you can't describe. This zine was Inspired by the reality of each of us being foreigners and unfamiliar with life in a new country. The zine is short, personal, and a way to process these new experiences.
Through the Loop: Chicago's Youth Artist Revolution x Jip Gallery 2021
Overpriced grocery stores, hipster art galleries, and quirky bars that now crowd gentrified Chicago neighborhoods do not reflect Chicago’s youth experience or create a welcoming environment for emerging Black artists. This displacement creates tension and misrepresentation of Chicago’s young artist scene. Through the Loop: Chicago’s Youth Artist Revolution is a mixed-media virtual exhibition that explores themes of youth displacement, positionality, and activism. Chicago’s youth are often faced with the harsh realities of their neighborhoods changing, unequal heavily policing of Chicago Public Schools, and forced adulthood.
