Join artist Lennon Michelle Wolcott Hernandez on Indigenous Peoples’ Day at Gallery 263 for an artist talk and performance of "Drum." The artist's solo show, "All Work and No Play," will be on view in the gallery. As part of the talk, Lennon Michelle Wolcott Hernandez will share how creating shrines and celebrating memory as a tool for decolonization is used within the work to celebrate culture and the importance of connection within personal identity and community. The performance of “Drum” speaks to memory, community, and loss through an examination of culture, tradition, and history.
In this solo exhibition, artist Lennon Michelle Wolcott Hernandez explores how having a full-time job impacts artists’ time for creativity and practice. Office supplies inspired by her day job are used as materials for the work. This exhibition, which also features patterns and symbols of the artist's multicultural American heritage, serves as a self-portrait, broadly defined.
