SPRING 2018

Spring is finally back and thankfully there has been much to do.

I will be doing a weekly performance at Hunter College's East Harlem Gallery during its presentation of QUEENIE | Female artists selected from El Museo del Barrio's permanent collection. I was honored to have been asked to do a performance near and dear to me called Ave Maria, in dedication to those lives lost in Puerto Rico during and after Hurricane Maria.

I will be at the gallery once a week til mid June doing my performance. Check my instagram @missyfoosy for more info.

QUEENIE:
Selected artworks by female artists from El Museo del Barrio's Collection

March 21 - June 23, 2018

New artwork commissions by Melissa Calderón, Alessandra Expósito, and Glendalys Medina.

QUEENIE features a selection of artworks by female artists across various media from the Permanent Collection of El Museo del Barrio. The exhibition highlights the institution’s collection with a particular focus on the female artists and QUEENIE takes its title from a sculpture by Alessandra Expósito. The exhibition brings together works which prompt a multifarious dialogue around society and gender through the artists’ varying perspectives and experiences. As part of the exhibition, HEHG has invited three NYC-based artists to respond to the exhibition with a new commission that further explores the connections among the collecting process, societal change, and gendered experience.


Para Roberto

One of my favorite images of all the images I have been working on. This is a material sample of what my painted stainless steel sugar cane stalks will look like as well as other images of my updated design. 

I am beyond excited for the next steps...

Spring | Summer 2017

Winter has been a hell. Looking forward to humid days, museum trips, and maybe a visiting a friend in New Mexico soon. Healing, recovering, taking each day to make work, excercise and get back to being me again...

 - Upcoming show @ Fresh Window gallery in Brooklyn curated by Nora Nieves. 3 new works!

 - Working hard on Para Roberto for Percent for Art. Read more about it from Robert Waddell


 

 

Fall Updates

Busy Busy Fall Season. I love it though. Still learning, still making work. Writing novellas and designing my own card game. Conspiring with epoxy and rubber. Making plans.  Feeling centered.

My work is currently on view in 4 exhibitions- The Rockefeller Bros Foundation in NYC, African American Museum in Philly, BoriMix at The Clemente, & Work in Progress at Bronx River Art Center.
