Investigating biomythography as an interdisciplinary visual arts practice...
Chris Christion and Jessica Wimbley are both artists/curators based in Southern California. As a curatorial team, Wimbley/Christion develop series of curatorial projects contextualizing the visual arts within “biomythography”, a term coined by poet Audre Lorde, defined as the combination of biography, history, and myth. Through biomythography, Wimbley/Christion work as context providers for critical dialectic: addressing the nuances within ever-shifting identities and how we experience/create our contemporary world and culture.
Biomythography: Secret Poetry Hidden Angers, which was first featured in 2014 at Claremont Graduate University, was a first in a series of exhibitions, which include exhibitions at Eastside International Los Angeles (EXLA), California Lutheran University, Cerritos College, and University of La Verne.
Biomythograpghy has featured the work of artists: Zenia Baltagi, Guillermo Bert, Crystal Z. Campbell, Audrey Chan, Chris Christion, Christian Salablanca Diaz, Chuck Feesago, Vanessa German, Todd Gray, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Mimian Hsu, Tarrah Krajnak, Albert Lopez Jr., Abdul Mazid, Elisa Bergel Melo, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, Kimberly Morris, Thinh Nguyen, Juliana Paciulli, Glynnis Reed, Marton Robinson, Rachelle Rojany, Yoshie Sakai, Javier Esteban Calvo Sandí, Monica Sandoval, Glen Wilson, Jessica Wimbley, and Sune Woods.
