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.

Join her Patreon at the Creative Conversation level or above to attend! These sessions are recorded and uploaded into Patreon for folks who are unable to attend the live event.

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 for photos and additional context.

As an artist without a fine arts degree, Taja has to navigated the “art world” with intuition and self-direction. After the onslaught of black squares in Instagram last summer, she's been growing increasingly curious about her relationships with institutions. While not professing to know it all, Taja has done her best to carve her own path by being intentionally selective about collaborations, partnerships, sponsorships, and applications for opportunities.

In this month’s Taja Tuesday Artist Talk, she'll be sharing her stories and practices of working within and outside of institutional support, and what she has learned along the way. This session will be recorded, however, the recording will stop after her presentation to have a candid conversation with folks who attend.

This is a Patreon exclusive event so be sure to register at the Creative Conversation Patron level (or above!) to attend.
