Every single day we ask ourselves
who we are and how do we define ourselves
No matter what project you’re working on,
How does it benefit you?
How does it please you?
There are times we as artists
we ask our peers
for their thoughts
Their validation we seek may be what is missing in our work
Though we look through our audience to support our answers
It shouldn’t be our primary source.
Your mind is secondary to the heart
So let’s Bless This Heart.
“Belief in yourself is more important than endless worries of what others think of you. Value yourself and others will value you. Validation is best that comes from within.”
― Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, Dreams in a Time of War

The exhibition’s title comes from a southern american phrase to give personal judgement. We will now turn it into a phrase of personal celebration of claiming who we are.
