Opening: Matana Roberts at Fridman Gallery
Matana Roberts has called her work “panoramic sound quilting,” or the cobbling together of images and sounds to create versions of personal histories. Her past work has brought together everything from blank musical scores to appropriated images of Harriet Tubman and Sioux Native Americans. With this new show, titled “jump at the sun” after a passage from a Zora Neal Hurston novel, Roberts will debut new mixed-media works that deal with the “colonization of form,” or the way places absorb objects with political meaning, according to the artist.
Fridman Gallery, 287 Spring Street, 6–8 p.m.
