Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Respecting Black Women and Girls in St. Albans

April 12, 2019 to April 11, 2020
Daniel M. O'Connell Playground, Queens

Description:

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is the NYC Commission on Human Rights’ Public Artist in Residence (PAIR).  A program administered with the Department of Cultural Affairs, PAIR embeds artists within city agencies to address pressing civic issues through creative practice. Fazlalizadeh’s mural features the images of several faces, inspired by local Queens-based women she has met within community conversations, and text capturing the experiences of community members facing the daily indignities of anti-Black racism and sexism. The mural is intended to place, front and center, the voices and images of women of color and challenge societal norms that allow sexism and racism to persist.

This exhibition is presented by the NYC Commission on Human Rights and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
