One of the hashtags Los Angeles based artist Maya Mackrandilal utilizes is #NewGlobalMatriarchy, which aptly describes how she actively “strives to imagine radical futures for women of color, solidarity and liberation.” Her work is about complex power relationships connected to the violent history of race and gender in white patriarchal and colonialist systems that questions these power structures and visually exposes complicated imbalances of race, gender and class.
For this exhibit, Mackrandilal provokes the audience to discuss the origins of these inequalities by taking reproductions of “classical” sculpture, breaking them apart, and reassembling them into the “ANTI/body” – a body that is resistance, is all the things that white supremacy/Euro-centrism has tried to erase, is the black/queer/femme future.
