Decolonize the Imagination: Future Landscapes with Tosha Stimage
Programmed by Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo
Do you ever imagine that the world could be radically different for generations to come? Future Landscapes is a practical community exercise engaging difficult social problems through dialogue and art. Interdisciplinary artist Tosha Stimage leads a collage and weaving workshop that focuses on imagining the reconstruction of historical, social, and geographic inequity.
Tosha Stimage’s work focuses on the structural nature of language and its relation to black identity, employing coded messages to investigate the societal constructs of race and violence. Stimage earned a BFA from CCAD and an MFA from California College of the Arts. She is a recipient of the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship, the Murphy & Cadogan Award, and residencies at Real Time and Space and Facebook; she is currently an AICAD teaching fellow.
