Intisar Abioto
May 2021

Intisar Abioto (b. Memphis, TN. 1986) is an artist working across photography, dance and writing. Moving from the visionary and embodied root of Blackgirl Southern cross-temporal cross-modal storytelling ways, her works refer to the living breath/breadth of people of African descent against the expanse of their storied, geographic and imaginative landscapes. Working in long-form projects that encompass the visual, folkloric, documentary and performing arts, she has produced The People Could Fly Project and The Black Portlanders.
