ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE: DAWN OKORO
ABOUT DAWN OKORO
Nigerian American artist Dawn Okoro lives and works in Austin, Texas. Her work is informed by the composition techniques used in fashion photography. Using oil, acrylic, and other mediums she incorporates photography and ideas from popular culture. Her artwork embodies space, movement, pattern, design, texture, and color; as well as lived experiences and self-reflexivity. Self-reflexivity is a process by which she critically examines the experiences (interior and exterior) that shape her everyday life and those around her. Her latest series “Misogynoir/Resistance” examines the intersection between race and gender in America.Her work has been shown at the MoCADA Museum, Curtiss Jacobs Gallery, Texas Biennial, Rice University Museum, Texas Southern University Museum, and the George Washington Carver Museum.
