Across sub-Saharan Africa, artists working across a range of states, societies, and cultures deliberately created artwork that violated conceptions of beauty, symmetry, and grace—both ours and theirs.

For more than four decades, New York-based artist Maren Hassinger (b. 1947, Los Angeles, CA) has explored relationships between the industrial and natural worlds in a practice that is both meditative and critical. The BMA’s exhibition represents a broad range of her work with abstract compositions, videos, and documentary photographs. For her abstract compositions, Hassinger has transformed wire rope, newspapers, plastic bags, and other materials into evocations of beauty.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is the artist’s monumental installation, Birth of a Nation (2014), which represents the abstracted figure of a black woman nursing a white infant against the backdrop of the first official flag of the United States. Suspended above a mound of earth, the quilt is surrounded by Towns’ ongoing Story Quilts series (2016–), a cycle of seven works in luminous fabrics and glass beads that narrate the life of Nat Turner and his 1831 rebellion.
An exhibit featuring work from four artists – Ilene Gold, Robert Hofherr, Joyce Ritter, and Mary Jo Tydlacka – working in a variety of media, from painting to art quilts to collage.

The public is invited to a free opening reception on July 9 from 6-8pm.
