February 28, 2020, 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM @ Meet at Town Commons Parking Lot
Join us as we explore art exhibit by Jamaican artist Ebony G. Patterson “while the dew is still on the roses” . This is the most significant exhibition of the artist’s work to date, presented within a new installation environment that evokes a night garden. Her work investigates forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities. Her neo-baroque works address violence, masculinity, “bling,” visibility and invisibility within the post-colonial context of her native Kingston and within black youth culture globally. This exhibition focuses on the role that gardens have played in her practice, referenced as spaces of both beauty and burial; environments filled with fleeting aesthetics and mourning which is celebrating its first decade as a major center for the arts on Duke University’s campus and in the surrounding Research Triangle area. We will be having lunch at the museum’s café. Bring money for lunch.
