If You’re Watching This, It’s Too Late
Now in its seventh iteration, If You’re Watching This, It’s Too Late combines copper etchings of appropriated news media images printed onto transparent chiffon fabric and bitmapped stills ripped from popular mass media which are then screen printed onto patterned and shimmering, heavy opaque fabrics. These drawings and prints are both a nod to the editorial illustration often found in newsprint, as well as a call and response to daily current events as they were happening in the moment. Utilizing humor and satire to examine socio-political commentary within the context of Black interiority and culture, she superimposes linguistic play with current events and historical reference. This print installation, which began in the winter of 2016, has been exhibited six times, with a new section being added each time. The installation began at fifteen feet and currently extends to over one hundred and thirty feet long.
Opening Artist Reception: Saturday, June 1st, 7pm-9pm
