I AM HER EXHIBITION at SKYLINE COLLEGE: Olivia Yancey
"My shirt depicting Simba from the Lion King is not only my favorite movie, but I feel that the African patterns are a way for me to represent me connecting to my African heritage because as an African American women, my family are descendants of slaves. I have short natural hair, with hairy limbs, and unkept eyebrows. To feminize myself, I wore my everyday hoops and some blush and mascara . I decided to wear a ring from my grandmother and necklace from my mom to represent the women in my life and the impact they have had on my life."
The "We are the Revolution tours allow is a result of the educational programming around my personal exhibition "Who we are: the will to adorn. Within these tours students are provided a lecture, pop up exhibit, an intimate portrait session, and a student photography exhibit. The interactive photography session allows students and educators to be involved in titling each exhibition.
