Taylor Balkissoon is an artist and curator, or at least she used to be. She is of the strong opinion that ya'll are fuckin up. She has little reason to believe that art is democratic or can function properly under capitalism and has decided to pursue other ventures until she can prove herself wrong. A mind is a horrible thing to waste but so is a moral backbone. Also being mixed black and white in this country is a mindfuck and I'm over it.
