Ground Rhythms: Accumulating Landscapes of Race & Syncopating Infrastructures of Joy in New Orleans
This exhibition explores the accumulating landscapes of race in New Orleans, Louisiana. Through textiles that analytically and visually engage how race takes place in and through the urban geography of this delta city, the exhibition argues that racial processes accumulate and create the literal and metaphorical ground upon which subsequent forms of racial capitalism rest. In addition, the exhibition draws on and creates space from generations of residents' resistance to racial oppression and the making of new grounds based on mutuality, joy, and desire.
