Hello, I am Artist Marcia X and welcome to my Patreon! I am a Puerto Rican-American artist working with installation, performance, painting and film. My research and art practice centers the existential, cultural crisis Women of Color experience in the Diaspora.

My central aim:
There is a lot I want to do here at Patreon. Firstly, is to produce art criticism and reviews of exhibitions, artists, go over articles and share pieces of my research. I also want to be able to fund the creation a holistic body of work of my research and my writing, on the existential, cultural crisis WOC experience in the Diaspora. I have been doing this since undergrad, but as life happens, I haven’t been able to consistently study and produce this writing.

Short term goal:
As a novice film-maker, I am still finding my style, but am dedicated to this new part of my art practice. Your support means that I can continue producing my own work. I can also travel and collaborate with Black/Latinx performers and artists. Having already spoken with others and have developed some ideas, we are in the process of getting funding and your help would get us there faster!

Long terms goals:
Lastly, I love podcasting! Despite being rather shy (at times) I love talking to different artists about their work, politics, methods, and giving them a space where they can discuss a topic they’ve not felt they could comfortably anywhere else. My first podcast is now archived (recorded in 2014), but I still get requests from people who want to hear a past episode or two. Meeting goals here via Patreon will help me get my podcast back up and running with time dedicated to producing a quality show about contemporary art practice.

Thank you so much for stopping by my page and checking out what I aim to offer.

Goals

I will be able to set more time aside for the research and writing of work on a body of work centering the existential, cultural crisis of women of color in the Diaspora. This research will be mostly on art history, and in particular, AfroLatina artists and their practice. I will share documentation and the process in a tier to be determined.
