Take an Online Tour of Bisa Butler’s Fabulous Fabric Portraits, Courtesy of Katonah Museum of Art
I would love to see Bisa Butler’s show in person, but thankfully we can still view it online. This is her first solo museum exhibition and features 26 vivid and larger-than-life fabric portraits that capture African American identity and culture.
Visit the Katonah Museum of Art web site for a behind-the-scenes look at the unique practice and process which draws upon her “background as an African American of Ghanaian descent, evident in her choice of motifs, embellishments and patterning in the African textiles she employs. The works transform family memories and forgotten figures in African American history into narrative social statements.”
