Sixth & I
Creative Mornings Washington, DC
- This event has passed.
Born and raised in the Gullah/Geechee Lowcountry of South Carolina, Scott is a DC-based artist and storyteller. His work plays in the intersection of race, sexuality, and economics, while impugning mythologies of black male supernaturality. His art is focused in performance, sculpture, installation, photo, spoken word, creative nonfiction, objects, and ephemera.
He is an alumnus of the Capital Fringe Theatre Festival and (e)merge Art Fair. His storytelling has been shared on the stages of Busboys & Poets, Story District, and The Moth, where he serves as host for the DC outpost.
Scott’s fine art practice has enjoyed exhibits at the WPA Select Auction, Arlington Arts Center, Delaware State University, Goucher University, Art Miami the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, National African Art Museum, Katzen Art Museum, and the National Portrait Gallery. His upcoming memoir, Shrimp & Griots, is based on his storytelling narratives of the same name. His upcoming performance installation, “the Finest Amenities”, is a site-specific work commissioned by Alexandria City and explores enslaved narratives from the Gadsby’s Tavern Inn while interrogating the relationship between personal identity and the environment.
