Joyce J. Scott: Harriet Tubman and Other Truths
October 22, 2017 through April 1, 2018

In her most comprehensive exhibition to date, artist Joyce J. Scott weaves narratives with brightly colored tiny glass seed beads, sleekly sensuous and luxurious Murano glass, and fanciful found objects. Her subject matter is topical and often unsettling, powerfully presenting images dealing with racism, classism, slavery, and misogyny. Due to her deft use of seductive materials and her intrinsic wit, her art conveys a deep reverence for the human spirit, for familial lines, and for the inherent spirituality of people and things. Guest co-curated by Lowery Stokes Sims and Patterson Sims.
