Art, Life, and Social Practice, ALSP is an extension of my personal journey to understand the complexity and power of art. As many other passionate artists and art patrons, I want to talk about my love of art and it’s potential effect on us all. I genuinely believe in the power of art, the image and the art institution.  It is my belief that being an artist is a gift. If nourished, respected, and properly maintained, the gift of creating can have lasting effects on the artist, their creations, and environment.

However, I also believe the infrastructure of many art institutions, organizations and industry constructs within the art world need to be challenged, encouraged to be forthright, transparent, more inclusive, and progressive. 

Programing of Art, Life, and Social Practice will primarily feature minority artists living and/or working in the DC metropolitan area, the DMV art scene and the overall art industry. Namely, I will interview/engage visual artists, curators, collectors, arts organizations, and advocates. The intention is to feed the artistic spirit, stimulate scholarly dialogue regarding the arts, and challenge the status quo within the industry.
