Portrait of Intisar Abioto. She stands in a park carrying a camera with a camera strap around her neck. She looks confidently into the camera with a slight smile. Shes wears a patterned scarf and a patterned jacket. Her long black hair is styled in thin dreads. Sunlight highlights the left side of her face.

As part of our 2020-21 virtual artist-in-residence program, we are hosting live artist talks on Thursday mornings at 10am (PST). The talks are open to classes at Dr. MLK Jr School, other schools, and members of the public of all ages. The lecture series will be streamed live on YouTube and archived on our YouTube channel. Join us!

Intisar Abioto (b. Memphis, TN. 1986) is an artist working across photography, dance, and writing. Moving from the visionary and embodied root of Blackgirl Southern cross-temporal cross-modal storytelling ways, her works refer to the living breath/breadth of people of African descent against the expanse of their storied, geographic, and imaginative landscapes. Working in long-form projects that encompass the visual, folkloric, documentary, and performing arts, she has produced The People Could Fly Project, The Black Portlanders, and The Black.

Intisar Abioto is a 2020-2021 Artist-In-Residence at KSMoCA. Find out more about our residency program here.
