Outta Context: [Out.ta Con.text] n.

1. A showcase of new works by MaM exploring the politics of identity and sexuality in regard to women of color in western society.  2. Characterized by irony, politics, and absurdity 3. Comprised of  several pieces of diverse media:  (a)  Sound art: Psycho-so-map-ticAn audio map supposition of the mind of an impressionable young black girl in the current media driven society.This piece will be developed into a larger installation experience (b) Illustration/basic animation: Unmentionables 1 andUnmentionables 2; a series exploring the mundane ritual of care for one's underwear or lack thereof and what it says about a woman. See Jane; an illustrative exploration of a little girl's first experience with failure.(c) Installation: Look@ Me; a work in progress- a satirical vinyl triptych depicting the growth of a baby to young adult and the way media impacts her perception of beauty. 2 Sizes Fit All; a work in progress- sculptural installation utilizing mannequins and vinyl exploring the dichotomy between mainstream perceptions of the African female form (mammy vs hottentot venus).

Outta Context is the culmination of a creative journey through which I have discovered that life can be funny, sad, maddening, and exhilarating all at once- a journey I want to share with you.

This project will be completed by August 29, 2011. All pledged funds will go toward the completion of the listed works, space rental in Brooklyn NY, and the promotion of the project.
