SO FAR

If you are in the New York area check out this event tomorrow- you won’t be disappointed.

StudioJ, an art gallery and event space in Long Island City, NY will host published author and social activist @Spookwrites who was shot in the head August 12th by unidentified assailants while leaving a peaceful rally for Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The event titled Un Poco Low Coup: Literary & Visual Art of the New Revolutionary will center around the concept of a new identity for people of color through written, sculpted, and painted mediums by Spookwrites this Wednesday, September 17th at 7pm at StudioJ (11-11  44th Road, suite 404, Long Island City, NY). Her work, which focuses on topics ranging from self-identity to culture formation and power will expound on her daily life as a developing youth and artist who narrowly escaped death.  

With a single bullet lodged less than one centimeter away from her brain over a month after the incident, Spookwrites has yet to be contacted nor interviewed by law enforcement about her case. Fortunately her alma mater, Howard University, stepped in and appointed a lawyer to represent her. With a pending investigation, Spookwrites musters the strength to share her views on the social unrest and militarization of American soil. This program, Un Poco Low Coup: Literary & Visual Art of the New Revolutionary is designed to constructively shed light on international issues of power and identity amongst people of color.

StudioJ, is a multicultural art gallery and event space showcasing original, contemporary work from across the US and world-wide. StudioJ’s ethos resides in exhibiting emerging and established artists whose thought provoking expressions challenge paradigms and spark dialogue about societal issues that materialize in a variety of commercially viable, artistic mediums.
