Steffani Jemison
Steffani Jemison uses transparency and opacity as material and metaphor. Exhibition references include: Solresol, a universal language created in 1827 by François Sudre; Black Utopia: Negro Communal Experiments in America by William H. Pease and Jane Pease (1963); the confession of Nat Turner to Thomas Ruffin Gray (1831); and “Hamptonese,” the private script developed by visionary artist James Hampton. The exhibition is accompanied by two research workshops with Justin Hicks. For the opening, Hicks will present a performance in conversation with materials and
recordings from the workshops.
