Indigo Prayers by Charmaine Minniefield will be on view from June 8 - September 1, 2023 in the Lower Atrium Gallery.
From the artist’s website: “Firmly rooted in womanist social theory and ancestral veneration, the work of Charmaine Minniefield draws from indigenous traditions as seen throughout Africa and the Diaspora to explore African and African-American history, memory, and ritual as an intentional push back against erasure. She currently splits her time in residence between Atlanta and the Gambia, where she continues to study the origins of her cultural identity and Indigenous traditions by tracing the Ring Shout.
Minniefield's exhibition entitled, "Indigo Prayers: A Creation Story" was recently presented by the Michael C. Carlos Museum on the campus of Emory University in Atlanta.”
We are very excited to host this exhibition which will feature 5 new large scale works based on Ring Shout and Praise House traditions using natural materials and Indigo dyes.
