Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo (elle | their)
Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo is an environmental artist-scholar and movement weaver. They view every art-form as an act of storytelling, a tool to weave communities together. Tzintzun's work is a humble attempt to tell the stories of a new shared reality; stories that can serve as bridges, linkages for the people who are fighting to create a regenerative future.

In recent years, Tzintzuni has collaborated with their art and life partner,  Blake Lavia. Under the collective Talking Wings, they have worked on several environmental art and community centered projects, such as The North Country Rights of Nature Symposium and Confluence: A Tapestry of Rivers and their Guardians.
 In addition, Talking Wings coordinated the North Country Art, Land and Environment Summit. During this month long series of eventscommunity members from the St. Lawrence River / Kaniatarowanenneh Watershed (Haudenosaunee Territory) came together to discuss sustainable and regenerative solutions for the climate crises.

Previously, Blake and Tzintzun collaborated together on Memory Flow / Water of Boston. The project explored the layers of history hidden under the Quabbin Reservoir (Nipmuc Territory), source of Boston’s drinking water. During this project, Tzintzun and Blake coordinated multiple exhibitions and organized a weekend long conference/conversation with settler and first nation community members.  
In addition, Tzintzun and Blake's short films and installations have been exhibited in a number of venues, such as the Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci,  The ROAR Magazine, the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery, the TAUNY Center,  the Godine Family Gallery/MassArt, and the K&P New York Gallery
