Hi 👋🏾 party people. We are so excited to share a collaborative project that we have been working with Erin Patrice O’Brien on. Let’s start at the very, very beginning. We met Erin Patricia O’Brien a few years back while working under a different name. We were not new to her images as she is a veteran in the game of photography. One of our members has fond memories of going through vibe magazine, swooning over O’Brien’s work, and pretty much beginning to carve her own creative identity.

Creativity doesn’t live in a vacuum. We firmly believe that everyone is inspired by everything that they take in around them from images, sound smells, movies, experiences etc. The ability to see yourself or the potential of yourself in terms of being a woman, being black, being a person of color in mainstream and celebrated is such an honor and a gift as far as personal development goes. As creatives that identify as ‘arrangers’, we are often collecting things both literally and conceptually that serves as a palette for us to work with. It has been a real fun time to include Erin Patrice O’Brien’s archives in the mix of that palette. We sit on the back of so many other creatives who have paved the way for us, This project is a homage, archival study, and celebration of all the shoulders that we sit on.

We had the pleasure of going through O’Brien’s archives and remixing them in celebration of the value it is to see yourself in terms of iconography.

This project has been in the works for a little bit over a year. We wanted to make sure that it has its proper reverence as it does deal with value. We are super excited to announce that some of the images from this collaboration along with additional collages and photographs by Mz. Icar will be on display in downtown Brooklyn as part of this year’s Photoville exhibition.

The work will be on public display at Brooklyn Bridge Park – Pier 4 Beach September 17th -November 29th 

Very limited edition prints are for sale please hit us up, for the price list.
