Loni Johnson's residency at Locust Projects transforms the Mobile Studio into a physical space to inform, heal, and offer counter-narratives that commemorate Black women and girls and celebrates their role in the community. As part of her current exhibition, Johnson invites you to bring meaningful objects--such as photographs, memorabilia, crystals, jewelry, and more--and build small altars as offerings to your ancestors. Participants will be guided to contemplate how we claim, navigate, and hold space; how ancestral and historical memory informs where, when, and how we occupy spaces; and how we carry and honor our ancestors in the spaces we move through. The altars will be unified into a larger piece and installed as a collaborative work.
Locust Projects is OPEN! Come visit us and see installations on view by Tania Candiani and Cornelius Tulloch Wed-Sat 11am-5pm.
