Third Worlds: Third World/ Karachi (2011)

Through Voices Breaking Boundaries, I worked with artist Robert Pruitt and a team of artists in Houston’s historic Third Ward to co-produce and co-curate Third Worlds: Third Ward/Karachi.

Artists from Karachi sent work, and the Houston-based artists and I created site-specific installations in two residential homes through which we explored parallels between the Third Ward and elements of life in Karachi.

Third Worlds: Third Ward/Karachi was made possible through the support of: the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; Houston Endowment, Inc.; Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; The Simmons Foundation; & Texas Commission on the Arts. VBB receives funding support from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.

Ongoing & Additional Projects


I am an author and speaker, an artist, and a community and cultural activist.

If I can use my talents and passions to inspire you or your network to push boundaries and become involved in our communities, please connect with me. I am open to schedule readings, workshops, courses, or multimedia installations.
