Place in Line

Place is often defined and described in relationship to geographic and social attributes. In Place In Line, place emerges through use of lines as a form of mark making that both captures and translates placeness or placelessness. Within these works, repetition of line is utilized to demarcate and shape the moments within and between physical, biographical and abstract locations to capture or reflect our perception of the places around us.

Slam Nuba featuring Peace

This month we're featuring the incredible poet Peace! 
Peace is a queer, black woman residing in Houston, Texas. Her writing style can be described as cut-throat wisdom; creating an experience that engages the audience and allows them to feel/heal freely based on interpretation. Her work can be seen on Write About Now Poetry as well as published in Thorntree Press’ A Whore’s Manifesto and her latest body of work, “Inside a Whore’s Mind.” Contrary to the common definition encapsulated in her name, Peace represents the confidence and grace in being yourself in your skin and not apologizing for it.
