Precious Okoyomon, who will have a future project at the AAM, is an artist, poet, and member of a collaborative cooking project called Spiral Theory Test Kitchen. For the last few months, she has been at the LUMA Foundation in Arles, France, completing a residency. Okoyomon has been painting flowers during COVID, sometimes against flames while wildfires raged in California. She currently has an exhibition that recently closed at the MMK Frankfurt—a large-scale installation that includes invasive plant species and highlights the politics of ecological colonialism.
