Emergence: Mojave Artists of Color Collective (MACC), on view through November 5, will be the first-ever public exhibition of works by MACC artists as a collective. The exhibition at Compound YV, an artist-run space in Yucca Valley, CA, will both stabilize and uplift the group as they take this important step forward as an organization and present their work to the wider community.
The title, Emergence, also reflects that MACC is a relatively new community and resource for self-identified artists of color who live and work in the Morongo Basin. Curated by Elena Yu of MACC and Caroline Partamian on behalf of Compound YV, the artists featured also include Sakura Sky Kelly, Mansi Shah, Yvonne Buchanan, Lisa G. French, Alex Maceda, Douglas Bank, Josie Kim Parker, Tania “T” Hammidi, Miri Hunter and Stacey Villalobos.
