Description

Artist Carletta Carrington Wilson's mixed media collages are letters written, during the plantation era, by enslaved African Americans, using an inventive language, which she depicts with twisted and knotted paper lines, botanical imagery, and symbolic objects. As she explains, "My work is an exploration of the ‘text of textiles.’ The exhibit, field notes, reconstructs the field as a landscape of literature, its rows written upon by hands mapping a place of ancestral memory in code."

Meet the artist at a reception June 6th from 5 to 7pm or at a talk she is giving on June 20th at 5pm.
Exhibit open during Miller Library open hours.
