Autumn Breon
Artist, former rocket scientist, and perpetual freedom seeker using guerrilla performance to reimagine how we compensate women for their labor. Autumn’s examination of contemporary art throughout the African Diaspora began when she was living and working in South Africa. Through inquiry-based interaction, she invites audiences to participate in the examination of freedom, intersectional identities, and Diasporic memory. Using a variety of media – including installation, performance, and collage – her qualitative and quantitative research processes provide the foundation for reimagining and creating systems that make current oppressive systems obsolete. Breon’s work has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institute, Aspen Institute, TED, the Obama Foundation, Artnet, Time Magazine, and the New York Times.
