We currently live in an economic system that, by and large, does not support artists except when they create something for sale. The US economy could do more to support living artists beyond what they produce, but given the current systems and structures, many artists engage in the gig economy and take on jobs (full time, part time, consulting) to sustain themselves and invest in their work.


In this month’s Taja Tuesday Artist Talk, Taja will be sharing how she make sense and meaning of her paid gig work, and the ways in which that work has informed and inspired her creative projects to date. She’ll also be sharing her visions and hopes to sustain herself beyond the gig economy. After the talk, she’ll open up the Q&A space for dialogue and dreamstorming for how we can all move beyond selling our time.

Sacred living and daily ritual are an integral part of Taja's creative praxis. In this month’s Taja Tuesday Artist Talks, she’ll be sharing how her regular journaling practice has informed, supported, and inspired three of her works: The Bag Lady Manifesta, Re-Membering is the Responsibility of the Living, and II XI XX (two | eleven | twenty) biomythography project.


Tune in to hear how memory, writing and ritual convene in her heart, hands and body to create art concerned with healing, freedom, and liberation.

July is Taja's birthday month! In honor of Cancer season and her solar return, she's making some of her archival footage available to view on Patreon for a limited time.


In 2019, Taja had three opportunities to present her interdisciplinary work with trash bags in solo exhibitions entitled "Re-Membering is the Responsibility of the Living" at the Carver Museum in Austin, TX (March-July); Practice Gallery in Philadelphia, PA (September); and Art League Houston in Houston, TX (November 2019 - January, 2020).


Three videos and an audio track have been shared in Patreon that were designed for the in-person installation experience. For the rest of the summer, Patrons have an opportunity to virtually experience this work. This video is a preview of "Bag Lady in Black: Iteration II."


These will be available to view and listen to until the Fall Equinox on Wednesday September 22nd.

To get a feel of how these materials were used in the museum and gallery spaces of her exhibition, visit tajalindley.com/installation for photos and additional context.
