This exhibition presents the artist Danielle Scott’s dedication to social commentary and ancestral storytelling. The artist spent over a year visiting plantations in the United States sourcing materials and historical documentation in order to connect to these stories and visualize them in these works. She feels a calling to tell the stories of ancestors, of warriors, of love, of sadness and of resilience. This collection integrates photographs, delicate papers, reprinted documents, fabrics and objects to create layered portraits of the lineage of Black families across generations.
This exhibition stems from an exhibition, Ancestral Call, presented by Gallery Aferro from Oct. 7, 2022, to Jan. 21, and originally curated by Anthony E. Boone and Bryant Small.
A special reception is planned for 5-8 pm Feb. 9; Danielle will speak at 6 pm.
