Director & Editor – Student film created in the Documentary Certificate program with The School of Media Studies at The New School.
Located on the border of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick, two rapidly changing Brooklyn neighborhoods, Grace Exhibition Space presents the collision of the “art world” and the “real world” with its action-based performance art.
I began using video to document my own art and then began to branch out and document other artist work. Eventually I wanted to connect my activism and interest in social justice with my art so I went back to school for documentary at the New School. My first film, Interstice, still followed artists but I couldn’t ignore the galleries surrounding neighborhood and class difference that I was witnessing. Interstice is just me observing the intersection of these two worlds while still sharing the work and ideas of a global network of artists.
