RASHAYLA MARIE BROWN (aka Professor RMB) rejects the formality of institutional artmaking to question the hierarchies it allows to persist. Drawing from a background as a DJ, graphic designer and spoken word artist, her written and scholarly work rewrites master narratives. As a writer, RMB’s viral essay “Open Letter to My Fellow Young Artists and Scholars on the Margins” was shared over 10K times online as of 2022. A lifelong nomad who has moved 24 times, RMB began an artistic practice as a poet and researcher in London, England and regularly travels to assess the impact of art institutions internationally. RMB’s work and words have been featured in Art Forum, Artsy, Hyperallergic, Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art, Performa Magazine, Prospect.4 New Orleans, and the covers of Chicago Reader and New City.
