Wellin Museum of Art Presenting "Karen Hampton: The Journey North" and "Renee Stout: Tales of the Conjure Woman" - Opening October 3

 
Presented by   ARTINFO

Karen Hampton: The Journey North

October 3 – December 20, 2015

Curated by Stephen J. Goldberg, Associate Professor of Art History, Hamilton College, and Susanna White, Associate Director and Senior Curator of Collections, Wellin Museum of Art

The Wellin Museum of Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Los Angeles–based fiber artist Karen Hampton, who draws from her own multicultural heritage to examine the complicated history of America, replete with dreams of freedom and the loss entailed in displacement. Employing hand-stitching and weaving, as well as materials that allude to African-American culture, such as indigo, cotton, and raffia cloth, Hampton embeds her work with symbols, images, and texts that tell the stories of her ancestors. She also incorporates nontraditional techniques, including photo transfers and digital printing, to forge a new style of visual personal narrative.

The Journey North features work that examines stories from Hampton’s family, and others, as points of entry to explore the multifaceted history of the Americas from 1774 to the present. Through installations of woven, stitched, and digitally printed imagery, the artist narrates the internal struggles that accompanied her ancestors’s quest for freedom and equality and points to a broader struggle with identity felt in America today.

Renée Stout: Tales of the Conjure Woman

October 3 – December 20, 2015

Curated by Mark Sloan, Director and Chief Curator, Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, College of Charleston

The Wellin Museum of Art is pleased to partner with the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston to present Renée Stout: Tales of the Conjure Woman. This exhibition offers a selection of work from the last decade by Washington, D.C.–based artist Renée Stout. Combining vestigial African-American customs and street culture with the theatrical and carnivalesque, Stout creates assemblages, installations and tableaus, vibrant paintings, prints, and photographs to tell elaborate narratives that feature characters conceived of by the artist.

Tales of the Conjure Woman presents an artistic interpretation of hoodoo and voodoo that unmasks these mysterious traditions. By channeling her alter ego, Fatima Mayfield, a fictitious herbalist and fortune-teller, Stout provides a window into the invisible spiritual forces at work in contemporary life. She looks to these spiritual traditions as a jumping-off point for developing her own distinct visual language, resulting in a complex body of work that is meticulously constructed and laden with symbolism.

Museum Hours | Tuesday – Sunday: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

All exhibitions and programs are free and open to the public.
