Blood Memory is an exhibit that emphasizes Montoya’s personal subjectivity to growth and the decolonization of her own identity. Using Afrofuturism as a backdrop, this series is about exploring a black femme identity before and beyond intergenerational trauma. The actions of remembrance and exploration are the mechanisms that Montoya refers to as Blood Memory.
Williams is a Dallas based digital artist whose work centers around themes of ontological blackness, decolonization, and what that means in an ever-changing cultural landscape. Her art primarily encompasses digital collages, photography, and installation.
This exhibition runs from Feb. 23 through March 24 at TWU’s East and West Galleries, free admission.
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 23, 5-7pm
