Tameca Cole is a visual artist and a 2022 Right of Return Fellow. Her project is still in development but will focus on issues women face while incarcerated.
Her work links penal time to other forms of racialized subjugation and violence against Black people. Her collages combine images from newsprint, books, and photographs to examine the criminal legal system and the nation’s long history of anti-Black violence. Her work has been shown at MoMA PS1, The University of Alabama, and Martos Gallery. She has received fellowships from South Arts, Art Matters, and the Art for Justice Fund. Her work is in the permanent collection of MoMA.
