Gold Was Made Fa’ Her
Cecily E. Horton Gallery

A visual poem dedicated to Black hood women in the South, Gold Was Made Fa’ Her encompasses the artist’s ongoing body of work in photography and community building. The project celebrates women of the South Side, Houston, to center and amplify their voices and the voices of Black women across generations who have been impacted by structural inequity, generational narratives, and respectability politics.

Forthcoming: Essay by Danielle Mason.

Gold Was Made Fa’ Her is organized by the artist and Rebecca Matalon, Curator, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.

This exhibition is made possible with the support from The Idea Fund and funded in part by The City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.

The Sankofa Project
Curated by Tierney Malone
Main Street Windows

Curated by Tierney L. Malone, The Sankofa Project is a multi-year examination of the historical events leading up to our current moment of social unrest and racial reckoning. Beginning with the people and stories that make up our own communities of Houston, this project aims to bring light to the events that have been censored or ignored in historical narratives in order to reinforce the racial oppression of Black Americans.
