Looking towards our infinite spirit, those that inspire and keep the fire burning bright -- Infinite Spirit Social Club is an open monthly salon aimed to nurture and sustain creativity by providing a space for Tulsa creatives and community members to meet, socialize, discuss their work, and exchange ideas. We aim to build a sustainable framework for informal learning and critical response by engaging with the public through food, art and discursive action.
Tamara Santibañez (b. 1987) is a multimedia artist living and working in Brooklyn. Her work is rooted in subcultural semiotics, exploring the meanings we assign to materials and accessories. Enlisting inanimate objects as stand-ins for human figures and relationships, Santibañez emphasizes the undulating exchange between power and vulnerability, otherness and assimilation, generational expectations and individual capability. She is the founding editor of New York-based independent publishing house Discipline Press and editor of the 2018 anthology Sexiness: Rituals, Revisions, and Reconstructions(Sang Bleu/Discipline Press). Santibañez has a long history of community work, having taught as a visual arts instructor at Rikers Island and with Rehabilitation Through the Arts at Bedford Hills Correctional, as well as having trained with the New York City Anti-Violence Project’s crisis hotline cohort. She brings her experience in community organizing to her creative and tattooing work, visualizing tattooing as a transformative practice, a space for healing, and as a vehicle for resistance to mechanisms of oppression.
