About Le’Ecia Farmer:

Le’Ecia Farmer is a queer Black parent and creative. She has studied fiber art, visual art, apparel design, and mixed media. She continually draws inspiration from the overt and covert connections between her cultural upbringing and art practice. Le’Ecia likes to play with the various meanings that materials possess and views every medium as an opportunity to explore, experiment, or disrupt. Le’Ecia often engages with themes of diasporic longing and loss. She is drawn to materials like cotton, wool, raffia, fabric and natural dye and treats these materials as living and vibrating things. They carry our stories, as we do them

About what if:

what if is an immersive exhibition that explores the expansiveness of interiority through personal curiosity, as evidenced in Black artists’ visual narratives. This exhibition focuses on the ways the artists remain curious, imaginative, and authentic to self, despite outside perceptions of Black art, highlighting their sources of curiosity through interior monologues that flirt with ideas of time, ritual, tradition, and playful expressions of self and emotion. Through artwork, spaces for convening, and programming, what if invites visitors to be curious and consider how these artists have come to understand themselves and their worlds, away from the stereotyping of Black art, by tending to their curiosities and inner selves.
