An exploration of the expression one makes when the music is just that good. Meant to expand on the assumption of universality and generality in Black expression and whether or not such a feeling is a common experience.

It makes me wanna will be projected each afternoon and evening, visible directly from the street at 1224 W Loyola Ave while the space itself remains closed to the public. To view online, visit romansusan.org/it-makes-me-wanna.

Paige Taul is an Oakland, CA native who received her B.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in cinematography from the University of Virginia and an M.F.A from the University of Illinois at Chicago in Moving Image. Her work engages with and challenges assumptions of black cultural expression and notions of belonging. Her interests lie in observing environmental and familial connections to concepts tied to racebased expectations and expose those boundaries of identity in veins such as religion, language, and other black community based experiences. To view more work by the artist, please visit vimeo.com.

Roman Susan strives to support the work of the artists in our midst. With the broad social consequences of COVID-19, we are very grateful to everyone who supports one another through this exceptionally stressful time. For the time being, 1224 W Loyola Ave will feature new art installations, video projections, and storefront residencies while the space remains closed. These projects are offered to our immediate neighbors, on view from the street. If you are not able to comfortably walk by our storefront from your residence, please enjoy these projects from afar, through our website and on social media. Thank you all for your support, please stay safe, and let’s take care of one another.
