January 21 - 22 @ 8pm*
Tinuade Oyelowo is a multidisciplinary artist. She centers her work around social justice issues in and around race, gender, political oppression, environmental deterioration, and classism. With every project she begins with a series of open ended questions that guide her into her creative platform. Tinuade's goal is to create and communicate her visions with same perplexity she is haunted with. She has obtained a B.F.A in Theatre with an emphasis in original works from Cornish College of the Arts and a M.F.A from Brooklyn College’s PIMA (Performance and Interactive and Media Arts) Graduate Program. Collaboratively she has worked with the brand Dear Kate on their “The Perfect Body Campaign”, and one of the oldest public gardens in New York located on 6th and Ave. B as part of a public art piece. She has shown her work at Trestle Gallery, Clemente Soto Vélez Gallery, 7 Dunham Gallery, Art@Renaissance Gallery, Recession Art Gallery, Bushwick Open Studios, and Vital Joint. In 2015 she was one of ten Artist and Residents at the Wassaic Project for the month of April. She has worked with Repertory companies such as Court Theater, Silk Road Theater Project, Milwaukee Repertory Company, Bread and Puppet Theater Company, and Seattle Repertory Company. She has also worked as an educator for the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and guest professorship at Adelphi University. Tinuade now melds her past theatrical and performance art background in with her obsession for environmental visual art and installation based work.
