How do we face our personal and collective histories as individuals and as a human family in conflict with one another? What is our inheritance, and is it possible to transform it?
Todd Thomas Brown's process is an ongoing inquiry into the complexity of global identities: the ways in which we identify ourselves and others, the groups and cultures we inhabit, and the need for creative environments where we can encounter one another in a meaningful way. INHERITANCE and DREAMS concludes Brown's yearlong Artist Fellowship with the de Young.
Brown’s experience spans 20 years of exploring artistic disciplines and presenting small-scale arts events within the context of local and global communities. Brown is a founder of the Red Poppy Art House and the Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP) and is an artistic advisor for the EDELO contemporary art center in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Together with Meklit Hadero, he leads the music ensemble Nefasha Ayer—The Space of In Between.
