Firelei Baez: Trust Memory Over History
WED. 1/27 | 11:00AM – 6:00PM @ GALLERY WENDI NORRIS
The works featured in the exhibition are part of the artist’s ongoing investigation into socio-political movements of black resistance across the global diaspora. By illuminating underlying links between seemingly disparate experiences, Báez traces shared iconographical systems of rebellion, ranging from the Latin American azabache, to female resistance in 18th-century Louisiana, to 19th-century socialism, to the 1960s civil rights movement in the United States.
