For her first international residency, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, in partnership with Fusion, will travel to Mexico City to produce new work featuring local women, the first trip outside of the country for STWTS that will be documented for a story on Fusion Digital. This is very exciting as it’s Tatyana’s first trip to work in person with women outside of the country.
The week will kick off with a group discussion with Mexico City women to learn about their experiences with harassment in public spaces. From there, Tatyana will draw their portraits and design original pieces — in Spanish — that reflect their stories. Tatyana will then wheatpaste these pieces around the city, and, with help from the Fusion team, document locals’ reactions to work.

After doing some public art in Newark over the next couple of weeks (details of which I’m excited to share as things come together), I’ll be heading to Mexico City. This will be my first trip outside of the US for STWTS. I’m super excited to be working with the folks at Fusion who’ll document the project and present it all in a new and exciting way. And I’m even more excited to meet and work with women of Mexico City. To hear their stories, their realities, and to make some art to help amplify their voices.
