Essentials is a multi-media collective producing holistic applied arts experiences. These multi-faceted events incorporate disciplines such as photography, fashion, graphic design, video, projection, animation, music, and installation. Although a single image may include many Essentials members, there is always a unified vision of experimentation, fluidity, and diversity.
Essentials creates a platform for underrepresented artists to express themselves and find support within their field. In the search for emerging talent, innovative voices, and unseen narratives, collaboration with other creatives is celebrated. Essentials is composed of and embraces artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community.
As a member of Essentials, Orozco acts as exhibition coordinator, copy/content writer, and publicist.
San Antonio's Luminaria Festival of Contemporary Arts invited Essentials to propose an installation for the 10th annual showcase. Orozco collaborated with the Essentials team from conception to produce a multi-sensory exhibition that received acclaim in multiple outlets, including a best of 2017 list.
