I'm excited to be an Impact Artist Fellows with the Human Impacts Institute. The fellowship teams scientists, ecologists, and health and policy professionals to collaborate on a project that will be presented in September.  I will be collaborating with environmental health activist, Jalisa Gilmore of NYC Environmental Justice Alliance.
I was featured in "Shared Dialogue, Shared Space," a video by Korea Art Forum. This documents a public exhibit that took place in April, 2021. It includes a short interview about my piece (Timestamp: 13:00 - 18:45).
Shared Dialogue: Shared Space talk over zoom.
As an ArtBridge: Bridging The Divide Artist Fellow, I'll be producing a mural that will be hung on scaffolding in the Mitchel Houses in the South Bronx!  More on this next month.

Check out my solo show, "Don't Let It Slip Through Your Fingers"  at Flux Factory
"CLOSED CASKET"
"Closed Casket" was a performance done during my solo show, "Don't Let It Slip Through Your Fingers" opening at Flux Factory. This included a eulogy, and commemorative poetry given at each of the three pieces featured in the show. 
Last month on Mother's Day weekend, I presented my solo show "Don't Let it Slip Through Your Fingers" as Artist in Residence at Flux Factory:  “Don’t Let It…” “...Slip Through…” and “...Your Fingers” includes three acrylic painted and assembled works that are inspired by the loss of a cherished object. These three works were presented as a solo show at Flux Factory at the end of Mohr's Artist Residency.  In addition to these three works which were presented indoors, four additional public works were presented in parks throughout the spring and summer 2021. Objects are endowed with the power of reference by the signifier. This can include memories, philosophies and in some cases, a spiritual connection. Very often when an object is lost, so too are the memories that they inspire. This can leave us spiraling into despair and grief.This work was created in an attempt to fill this void by memorializing what was lost, and serve as an example of the power objects have over us: how we process their loss, create something new to continue their legacy and deepen the emotional power that the original object stood in for. 
I am grateful to have been selected  for the Bridging The Divide Artist Fellowship at Mitchell Houses with Art Bridge!  More on this next month.
You can read the full article at Bronx Times, and can check out the "We Are in Reach" exhibit including my work "Descension", as well as work by Kraig Blue and Jwahir Hawkins on Governor's Island at the Visual Muze space.  Your can read additional press at Artfix Daily and TimeOut NY.
You can check out a mini audio talk on my piece on Otocast for the "We Are In Reach" show on Governor's Island. This show was curated by Savona Bailey-McClain of West Harlem Art Fund.
A Look at More Things That Happened Last Month:
Last month I presented "Flourish" at the LUMINA show at The Local Project Gallery.  This show is a follow up to the iLLUSIONAL show that was presented at Chashama in February, and includes artists joshuagabriel, Jonathan Sims, and Valeria Divinorum, and is curated by Tristen Demmett.  Thanks to the success of the iLLUSIONAL show, we not only had the opportunity to present an additional show, but we each received an NEA grant on behalf of Chashama.
Had a great time presenting this collaborative piece, “In Memory Of...” over the weekend with Angela Miskis (middle banner) and Akemi Takeda (bookend banners) during @artinoddplaces festival (my contribution is the assemblage on the ground.) My contribution included remnants of the “Don’t Let It Slip Through Your Fingers” solo show I presented @flux_factory last week, and included the Grief Journal as shown in the "Closed Casket" video for audience members to reflect and share their experiences with loss over the last year.
I spoke at the Queens Council on the Arts Creative Conversation on 5/27.  The video will be available on their YouTube page later this month.

Interview and conversation with the artist


“Don’t Let It…” “Slip Through…” and “Your Fingers” includes three acrylic painted and assembled works that are inspired by the loss of a cherished object. Objects are endowed with the power of reference by the signifier. This can include memories, philosophies and in some cases, a spiritual connection. Very often when an object is lost, so too are the memories that they inspire. This can leave us spiraling into despair and grief.

This work was created in an attempt to fill this void by memorializing what was lost, and serve as an example of the power objects have over us: how we process their loss, create something new to continue their legacy and deepen the emotional power that the original object stood in for.

LUMINA is a dark room exhibition opening May 1st that will feature the new work: "Glimmer" at The Local Project Gallery.  This show is a follow up to the iLLUSIONAL show that was presented at Chashama in February, and includes artists joshuagabriel, Jonathan Sims, and Valeria Divinorum, and is curated by Tristen Demmett.

I will be presenting a collaborative public artwork with Angela Miskis and Akemi Takeda for the Art in Odd Places festival, taking place at the vacant lot on 14th st between 6th and 7th next to Art of Our Century Gallery (137 W 14th st, New York, NY, 10011) . This installation is reflecting how different cultures process ideas of loss through veneration by creating memorials. This work is inspired by Miskis' new painting series "Converting Fear Into Energy," Akemi's reflections on the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 and the AAIP experience regarding equity.  Dario's contribution will be inspired in part by his 2021 solo show at MFTA titled “Archetypes: A Visual Soundtrack”. With each artist representing a different marginalized group in the US, they present "In Memory Of..." as a collective acknowledgement of a human experience that unites us all. This is an AnkhLave Arts Alliance submission.

Our allyship in creating this work will coincide with an exhibit curated by Katerina Levantis and Ali Haselbeck at the Art of Our Century Gallery, highlighting AAPI artists for AAPI heritage month.  This exhibit is also in response to the political climate effecting AAPI communities today, and will feature AnkhLave Artists Kayo Shido and Akemi Takeda.

I will be speaking at the Queens Council on the Arts Creative Conversation on 5/27.  You can join HERE
My work will be featured in the "We Are in Reach" Exhibit at Governor's Island beginning May 1st.

I am excited to be a 2021 New Work Grant recipient from Queens Art Fund, for a solo show that I will present next year titled "Blood is Thicker than the Water that Separated U.S.".  This will involve travel research to Grenada, and a shrine installation series honoring my immediate maternal ancestors. 
I wrapped up my residency at Flux Factory last month.  It was a very creative time that I'm really grateful for!  Here is an Artist talk that I did regarding my show "Don't Let it Slip Through Your Fingers", interviewed by Graciela Cassel, TV Producer and Director of TransBorder Art.
I was included in the Italianità publication, featuring my "Bloodline" series.
As an ArtBridge: Bridging The Divide Artist Fellow, I'll be producing a mural that will be hung on this scaffolding in the Mitchell Houses in the South Bronx!  More on this next month.
