Kianga Ford, "Counting (installation detail)"
opens next week at Reed's Cooley Gallery. The exhibition pairs work by contemporary African American artists like Kara Walker with related African American associated artifacts and ephemera like those found in the work of Nick Cave. As they share semantic space, the relationship between the objects reflects upon the ways that African Americans have "re-purposed historical documents, material craft histories and folk art forms as indispensable vehicles for social and political critique."
