About the show
In Of Memories and Forgetfulness, the artists’ reclamation of memory, evident in their work, functions as a counter-hegemonic act asserting their agency and subjectivity. Through explorations of identity and personal narrative these artists use memory as a tool of recognition. Utilizing the almost ritualistic form of recalling, this act of remembering solidifies and grounds each artists firmly in the present. Brittney Leeanne Williams’ work explores remembered narratives of race, invisibility, and state-sponsored violence. Pooja Pittie’s abstract paintings recall her ability to move freely while confronting her progressive muscle disability. Caroline Liu’s work tackles her short-term memory loss while grappling with feelings of vulnerability.
