JoAnn McNeil - (St. Louis)
While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JoAnn McNeil has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly. Yet, here we are, finally witnessing an artist gently exploding onto stages, galleries, and afro-futurist festivals from St. Louis to Philadelphia.
