Within the current social and political climate we’re found looking backward as a way to find answers for today’s problems in America. “Oh, Maker” explores the work of 7 artists who through the act of re-appropriating materials are looking at that history of trauma on American Soil, the act of rebellion, as well the narrative of black women, and families. These artists are building on these conversations in their work. Using mix materials, visual language, and archives as a starting source to re-appropriate materials used to aid conversations about America today.
Coffee and pastries will be provided.
