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.
She’s recently been featured in the Dazed 100 Generation 30 and had pieces included as part of the styling for Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers Tour.
Here’s what she sent us this week.
Thanks for consuming!
