EVENTS

  • Sculpture Lecture: Rhode Island and the Re-Memory of Slavery
    March 23, 20177:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Location: Metcalf Auditorium


    Description:

    Marisa Williamson: Marisa Williamson works in performance, video, sculpture and photography. She often combines some or all of these to use narrative, language and myth as problem-solving tools to explore history, the psychology of the mind and the physicality of the body. Williamson has an ongoing body of work that looks at the psychological and physical reality of the life and role that Sally Hemings – a freed slave and mistress to President Thomas Jefferson – played in early American history; this work takes shape across various mediums and locations. She has staged site-specific performances at and in collaboration with Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, Storm King Art Center, and most recently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Williamson’s short film exploring Hemings' time spent in Paris, shot on location in France, has screened in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York. Her videos, performances, and objects show regularly in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. Marisa lives and works in New York City.
