Raza opens new art exhibit

I’d like to invite you to my upcoming group exhibition opening, Controlled Burn, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Thursday, June 27 from 6:30-8:30 pm. This show is the culmination of my year as one of WonderRoot’s Hughley Artist Fellows, during which my cohort and I attended monthly artist development sessions and received mentorship from working artists.

My piece is an interactive sound and light installation that explores the mass market music box, which for me, and perhaps many of you, is an object that is familiar and nostalgic where one could collect “treasures” as a child. While providing a small space to store memories and even build a sense of individual identity, the music box is also complex in the way it projects ideas of femininity and conformity.

MOCA GA is located at 75 Bennett Street, Suite A2, Atlanta, Georgia 30309 in Midtown. The exhibit will be up until August 24, so there is plenty of time to check out the show, even if you can’t make it to the opening reception. The museum is free for members, and $8 for non-members. Students and seniors (65+) with ID can attend for $5, and military and veterans have free admissions as well.

Hope to see you there! It is typically very well attended, so feel free to give me a heads up if you plan to be there, so I can look out for you!
