Rashayla Marie Brown To Exhibit at High Concept Labs

Chicago-based artist and director of SAIC Student Affairs for Diversity and Inclusion, Rashayla Marie Brown (BFA 2015) has been chosen as one of eight artists included in High Concept Labs’ Spring 2017 Sponsored Artists. Brown will exhibit her reality-television inspired film Reality is Not Good Enough to the audience who are then invited to edit the work. Themes of this film include queer theory, race, family, and other social issues. “I am challenging assumptions about media creation using a form that most people are familiar with but don’t create themselves,” said Brown. “There are not many Black directors, and I wish to remedy that with this project.”
