The public is invited to the free opening reception for Leah Grant: Becoming Once More from 5-7 p.m. It is one of several events and activities taking place that evening at the center’s campus, as part of ASC’s Art Night on The Block.
The exhibition — ASC’s first of 2023 — is sponsored by Simmons Bank. Reception libations are sponsored by MK Distributors.
The Fayetteville-based artist combines techniques such as screenprinting, photography, cyanotype and collage. Grant’s work recontextualizes her experiences by revealing and concealing the vulnerable parts of her identity to create new ones through collaging and using images taken from a personal archive.
“I use self-reflection to explore the relationships I have with others to better understand the relationship I have with myself,” she explained in her artist statement. “My research seeks to provide counter-narratives around what it means to be a Black woman by accessing and exposing vulnerable components of my experiences.”
She continued, “I incorporate collage through print, photo, and video processes such as screenprinting, cyanotypes, laser engraving, photography, video, and audio techniques to assist with the parts of my identity I wish to reveal and conceal. This body of work allows me to exist in the multiple and serves as a reminder to be gentle with myself.”
February 9 (Thursday) 6:00 pm - April 28 (Friday) 4:00 pm
