Join 2023-2025 Curatorial Fellow Yashi Davalos for a curatorial presentation about her practice, past curatorial experience, and future plans for her fellowship.

In 2020, Charlotte Street expanded its celebrated curator-in-residence position into a full-time Curatorial Fellow role. Charlotte Street selects an emerging curator to come to Kansas City for a 2-year fellowship to create original exhibitions, carry out studio visits, and develop public programs to deepen audience engagement.

Concluding this public presentation will be an overview of Davalos’ community engagement goals and a Q&A.

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 Persona, Past Present and Afro-Futurism at The Front Gallery. Her art has also been exhibited throughout New Orleans, at Plug Gallery in Kansas City, MO, Mint Gallery ATL, and In Partnership with Elevate ATL for Atlanta Art Week.
