Sights & Sounds: Arlette
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the journal will come at least twice a month.
Happy New Year and Happy Friday!
It feels good to be back with fresh eyes and renewed perspectives.
For this week’s guest curation, we reached out to Arlette — a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Mexico. Her practice takes shape through various multi-platform projects spanning across moving image, performance, sculpture, painting and fashion.
Her work acts as a framework for examining the nature, experience, and limitations of art and fashion, while seeking to create a new language for discussing the complexity of ethnic, religious, gender, and sexual identities.
Here’s what she sent us this week.
Thanks for consuming!
