Cole M. James: Call Them In
Cole M. James (They/Zi/She) is an interdisciplinary artist, Somatic Abolition Communal Consultant and Climate Justice Activist. Their work uses both figurative and abstract images, sound and scent to amplify the subtle ways perception can collapse and expand time. James received their MFA from Claremont Graduate University in Installation & Digital Media. “I make work as a negotiator, navigating the African Diaspora, circling the expanse of queerness and traversing through womanhood. I am interested in the intersections between digital production and the analog collecting of lived experiences.” Born in Chicago, raised in Moreno Valley California, James works and lives in Inglewood CA.
