2023-2025 Curatorial Fellow


Yashi Davalos (Yashira Lopez Davalos) b. 1995, is an emerging artist and curator. Her upbringing as an Afro Latinx Atlanta native transcends her relationship between the south and global south in her worldview of humanity vs. regional identity. Yashi’s objective as a curator is to build conversations of culture around perceiving hyper-capitalist focus on tokenism vs. non-monolithic aspects of identity. Her past curations include Echolocation: Industrialized PersonaPast Present and Afro-Futurism at The Front Gallery. Her art has also been exhibited throughout New Orleans, at Plug Gallery (Kansas City, MO), Mint Gallery ATL (Atlanta, GA)and in partnership with Elevate ATL for Atlanta Art Week.
