The Yogen Früz Brain Project returns with a vigorous campaign to raise brain health awareness and advance groundbreaking research on dementia and ageing. I joined the roster again this year with other talented artists whose art pieces will be displayed across the city this summer.
The 2020 | 2021 collection will feature brain sculptures designed by artists, celebrities and thought-leaders from across North America. The artwork will be on display at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. For more information, visit The Brain Project’s website, brainproject.ca.
Some friends and I got together and created a book list dedicated to the culture. These are good-reads. We each created a top 10 list and picked books from our lists. (download)
Holla at me with any suggestions.
PXP Contemporary X Showfields
I'm featured in a new show with Showfields NY. The exhibition is curated by Alicia Puig, Co-founder of PXP Contemporary. Showfields has had past hosts such as Maria Brito, Larry Ossei Mensah and others.
Here's more about the inspiration behind this curation:
"After spending most of 2020 indoors within the confines of our homes, we feel a collective longing for both nature and connection. These are two themes that are inherently a part of the artists' works that I've selected for this curation. Some present the human form immersed in a landscape or other natural environment, while others compose images with figures alongside animals, flowers, and insects. Working in the mediums of collage and painting, these artists remind us to appreciate the profound beauty of our surroundings and of the importance of having respect for it now and in the years to come.
These works also act as documentation of life as an artist during the pandemic. While they, like everyone else, experienced loss, grief, anxiety, frustration, and fear - like nature itself, they also went through periods of growth and renewal. For me, bringing together this collection of artists is a manifestation of the belief that 2021 will indeed allow for more opportunities to connect with the environment, ourselves, and each other. It's a sigh of relief, or rather, a breath of fresh air." - Alicia Puig
