SCREENING

ARTIST TALK

RECEPTION

TAAMA means “to walk” in Bambara. 

This exhibition explores the complexity of generational healing. TAAMA was born from the belief that our ancestors have blessed us and we honor them by walking a path toward healing.
TAAMA shares intimate stories of generational healing by centering maternal relationships. While the paintings are a visualization of ancestral blessing and healing journey, the conversations featured on the upcoming podcast offer a deep dive into shared experiences.
