because i am that is a two-person exhibition by Adee Roberson and Azikiwe Mohammed presented in CAAM’s atrium. Featuring screenprints, paintings, video, window vinyl, and a mix of sculptural works, because i am that is a malleable environment that will evolve to include additional collaborators in performance, movement, and sound. Roberson’s and Mohammed’s intuitive practices figure Blackness as an abstraction, something free of fixed narratives and boundaries. because i am that is a conversation between two artists, a means to attend to the physical and metaphysical and to build a cosmic vessel that offers transport to an unbound sphere of Black musings.

Betye Saar: Drifting Toward Twilight

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers Black image making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation, and possibility. At CAAM, Fazlalizadeh will present a series of portraits of Black Angelenos wheat-pasted across the atrium’s monumental walls. Based on photographs and conversations that took place this spring while the artist was living in Los Angeles, the portraits ask how safety is inferred, built, and felt for the city’s Black residents.
