OCTOBER 5 - MARCH 17, 2019
CURATED BY CRYSTAL MOWRY

I’ll Be Your Mirror brings the work of  the work of contemporary artists who enlist their parents in their practice. Stephanie Comilang, Erika DeFreitas, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Neil Goldberg, Milutin Gubash, and Vivek Shraya work across various lens-based strategies to revisit and reinvent found images as each artist proposes multiple ways of understanding familial intimacy. 

Wedge Collection prints from LaToya Ruby Frazier's series "The Notion of Family" are included in this exhibition. In this series, and in her first recently publishes book of the same title, Frazier offers an incisive exploration of the legacy of racism and economic decline in America’s small towns, as embodied by her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania.
