Curran seeks to works to expose and deconstruct the stories the myths we have of our society and ourselves, we bringing a more feminine perspectives into contemporary dialogue. Ogbara’s artwork looks to the in the intersections of Blackness, queerness, and womanhood as a way to process the circumstances situated within these identities whether occurring in the past, present, or future. Vidal’s addresses the beginning of collective human history, the future of humankind, and largely influenced by myths, history and literature.
