SUPREME BEING: THE SYMMETRY OF WHAT YOU SAW AND WHAT YOU SAY
Clough-Hanson Gallery (Rhodes College) / 2000 N. Parkway January 19, 2018 - February 16, 2018
Rashayla Marie Brown
In an “undisciplinary” installation, Rashayla Marie Brown (RMB) explores a diverse array of media including writing, photography, voiceover acting, and an installation of a makeshift red “dark room,” school desks, red vinyl window coverings, and a red carpet. Melding the aesthetics of kitsch (bourgeois realism) and communist art (social realism) with those of high art (museum design) and film, RMB’s work explores the coercive foundation of systems of display found in the desire to communicate a clear, moral message across various cultural contexts.
