Rashayla Marie Brown began her artistic practice as a poet and researcher in London, England and regularly travels to assess the impact of art institutions internationally. She rejects the formality of institutional artmaking in favor of a practice that questions the hierarchies these labels allow to persist. Drawing from a background as a DJ, graphic designer and spoken word artist, her work considers what historical narratives omit.
Ebony Iman Dallas is a fifth-generation Oklahoman and second-generation Somali American multimedia artist, arts educator, and writer. Through art, she combines rich and fiery hues with whimsical forms to bring the spirit and energy of her subjects to life. Her artwork primarily addresses social, political and cultural issues.
Sponsored by the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities and the Zimmerli Art Museum. Funding provided by Douglass Residential College, the Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice, and an anonymous donation. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Women’s Leadership. The Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series is a program of CWAH in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries.
