There is Enough For Everyone
Exhibitions, Curation

    There Is Enough For Everyone was a grassroots, warehouse exhibition curated and organized by Mich Stevenson and me, which brought together 29 artists. Our venue was adjoined with Knockout Factory, a historic, now displaced, community boxing gym. The theme of the show was to highlight the reality of scarcity and abundance in black or brown communities. All of the artists presented are black or brown identifying. The exhibition aimed to challenge institutional, elitist normalcy while providing a platform for artists of diverse backgrounds to present themselves. On the opening night, five artists performed on the boxing ring. The remainder of the warehouse space acted as a gallery from June 14th - July 8th, 2019 within Houston's East End.
