“Moore’s work explores the complexities of being Black in America. He deconstructs traditional African tribes’ rites of passage and centers it on the rite of passage for African Americans, differentiating what coming of age means for the community here: survival. With works like “Amerikkka Made US ‘Crazy’” and “Messiah // Middle Child,” Moore dissects the life of Black youth and their resilience.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES

The LA Time Daily Pilot features ‘Instruments of Change’ in a piece titled ‘Instruments of Change’ brings Latin American street art to O.C.‘. Thinkspace Project owner Andrew Hosner and the Fullerton Museum Center’s curator Kelly Chidester are interviewed in the piece and give an in-depth look at the collaboration and process involved to open the exhibition. The article also shares insights into the various talented artist whose work is featured in ‘Instruments of Change’.
“There are incredible artists from other regions of South America that we tried to get, but timing didn’t work out,” says Hosner. “So I definitely hope this is the first of many ‘Instruments of Change’ shows.”
