In this marketplace, which features a new collection of garments designed by the artist, as well as short films and photography made in collaboration with Black Queer collective, MASISI, the migration conversation is unpacked. Like rice bags, jutes of coffee, sugar, or native soil enriched with blood sacrifice, Ti Maché examines the broken promise of opportunity and decades of ruthless ignorance and pillaging.

In spite of finding new roots elsewhere, one’s creative enterprise becomes the restorative, healing balm here, that returns the desecrated back to its rightful essence.

Ti Maché will be on view at MoCADA until December 3, 2023.  For more info visit MoCADA.org

 

Presented by The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA). Made possible thanks to generous gifts from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs on behalf of NYC City Council, New York State Council of the Arts and Governor Kathy Hochul, and The Ford Foundation.
