"INTO•ME•I•SEE" is kicking things off with our first artist, Jazmine Hayes. Jazmine is an interdisciplinary artist born, raised, and based in Brooklyn, New York. She received an MFA from CUNY Hunter College and a BFA from CUNY Queens College. Her practice explores erased histories of the African diaspora and the ways they are preserved and reproduced through cultural traditions.
Through this exploration, Hayes works across various mediums as forms of research such as installation, painting, drawing, performance, video, sound and writing. Recently, Hayes has been featured in Art Forum, Interview Magazine and Artnet. For over 9 years, she has worked with community-based youth organizations across New York City as an educator and muralist with non-profits such as Groundswell Mural, Artistic Noise, Made in Brownsville, LES Girls Club and so on. In her social and community work, Hayes is passionate about providing youth of color with resources in the arts.
