Tameka Norris

Tameka’s work in many ways encapsulates and represents the relationship between the multi-generational, existing black communities and the New Orleans “Transplants.” Her time away from the city has allowed her to see from a different perspective the -sometimes strange- ways in which these communities engage with each other. Her liberty to speak in a tongue-in-cheek manner about something that is so commonly the elephant in the room, is part of what makes her work challenging for everyone who sees it, from every demographic. It is this type of challenging, sometimes subversive and passive-activist work that May gallery & residency wants to foster as the gallery & residency program develops.
