A collection of projects led by multidisciplinary artist Moja Robinson to celebrate completing his master's degree. Moja explores Black masculinity, cooperative building, environmentalism, and indigenization through his thesis, a short film, a photo series, a “children's” book, and a garment. All of which highlights his dichotomous perspectives, being innately privileged and undoubtedly oppressed.

As his final exhibition in Los Angeles, Moja experiments with installation techniques with film. Moja suggests that the mixture of hues and textures bend the lines of what we define. Thus, a psychological motive of societal behavior.
don’t bother me i’m a work-in-progress
JANUARY 2019 / LOS ANGELES / EXHIBITIONComing off his first solo exhibition, It’s Okay You Threw Me Away, themed around up-cycled installations, Robinson stains himself as a multidisciplinary artist with Don’t Bother Me, I’m a Work-In-Progress (W-I-P). After being released from art school during his adolescence, Robinson has continued to un-define the idea of expression. Frustrated with the structural ideologies of art in academia and the highs and lows of self-discovery, Robinson flushes these emotions through an arrangement of canvases.

An aural digest stimulating an idle sense. this project is to rekindle the act of learning and enjoying via ear. society has become reliant on visual perception, that it has become facile to pollute and distort the minds of the masses. ironically this project began during a time of turmoil between the usa and former soviet union. i was advised of the horrors of a cold country, but i compared it to the mass media and yellow press’ global groundless immortal vilification of high in melanin males. this mindset ultimately gave me the vision to open my ears and enjoy pоссия.
