Open Studios with Tatyana Fazlalizadeh and Maya Perry


Join us at KinoSaito this Saturday for open studios with our current artists in residence, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh and Maya Perry. Peek into their studios and chat with them about their practices.

 

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn based interdisciplinary artist working primarily in painting, public art, and multimedia installation. She is from Oklahoma City, born to a Black mother and Iranian father. Tatyana, whose social practice is rooted in Black feminist praxis, considers image-making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation and possibility. Tatyana makes site-specific work that considers how people, particularly women and Black folks, experience race and gender within their surrounding physical environments. She is the creator of Stop Telling Women to Smile, an international series that tackles gender-based street harassment by centering intersectionality in public art, and is the author of Stop Telling Women to Smile: Stories of Street Harassment and How We’re Taking Back Our Power.

 

Maya Perry recently graduated from Yale University MFA Painting/Printmaking program. She spent her formative years as a drummer/singer in the experimental duo “Laila” and lives as a painter/performer. Her goal is to create sources of light where the internal and external can exist simultaneously and forgotten, repressed, and/or present experiences can come to the surface. Her practice oscillates from mediums and techniques such as painting to 16mm film to stop-motion animation, writing, sound, and performance. She is recently incorporating themes of looping, record-making, and recording into her practice and wishes to highlight the Neurodivergent perspective about time, space, and experience.

 

Maya Perry will also hold a free live sound performance in her studio space on Sat. 23 Sept. 2023 from 4–5pm. (RSVP Required)
