Miami Book Arts’ inaugural project, Sweat Broadsheet Collaboration, teams writers and artists to create literary broadsides on the theme of sweat. In some cases, artists responded to words provided by the writers; some writers produced new works after conversations with artists; and still other pairs worked closely together to produce new collaborative works.
For this project, writer Nadege Green and I collaborated to create a new work titled, Tie Your Waist. Our piece reflects on migration, Haiti, Miami, strength, women, work, and generational legacies. The work includes an original narrative by Green and a mixed media work by myself that includes archival imagery, watercolor, and drawing on paper.
We hope you can join us for several events:
