Jasmine Hearn has traveled throughout the United States honing her craft via collaborations with dance companies, choreographers, and other artists. Through physical movement, Hearn will draw from her experiences as a self-identified black queer artist to cultivate an aesthetic environment to experience vulnerability.
Visual artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed has been featured in number of solo exhibitions, including the first all-female collaborative gallery in the nation, A.I.R., as well as MoCADA, VOLTA, and 21ST Projects: Critical Practices, Inc. Her work explores the implications of language and political narration within text-based installations, large-scale public text pieces, sound projects, and discursive programming.
