REMIX, NOW ON VIEW AT COLUMBIA MUSEUM OF ART
February 5th- May 3rd 2016
The Columbia Museum of Art presents a groundbreaking exhibition that includes a wide variety of work dating from the early 20th century to the present. REMIX highlights the practice among many African-American artists of retelling or refashioning themes, ideas, and objects in new ways and from their own unique perspective. Indeed, the title REMIX is a reference to how African-American musicians sample other music by quoting it in new musical works, and this same process goes on in the visual arts. REMIX will not only impress viewers with highly creative objects, it will invite discussion about history and how artists create entirely new works.
Congratulations to our current exhibiting artists Antoine Williams and Michaela Pilar Brown, (it was) A Wet, Hot, Southern Summer, as well as Charleston artist and friend Colin Quashie, for being featured in this incredible exhibition!
