ABOUT THE EXHIBITIONS "DISPLACING Blackness: Cartographies of Violence, Extraction, and Disposability" by Shana M. griffin chronicles the afterlife of slavery through the institutionalization of racial and gender violence in spatial segregation and discriminatory policies designed to make black people disappear. "To the Farmhouse" by Sarah Hill is a stop-motion animated reclamation story that navigates the hostile relationship between Hill’s ordained mother and the artist’s transness. Emphasizing Hill’s thoughts and feelings, the work seeks to disrupt heteronormative timelines of familial patterns. "MATTER out of time by Ana Hernandez" -- painter, printmaker, and sculptor currently living and working in New Orleans -- features reflections on a re-centering of and return to Ways of Knowing.
