One Week MFA Thesis Exhibition: Jeanine Tatlock, Not in My Backyard

May 17, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Reception: May 17, 5-7 pm Why do we have so many inequalities in America. Who or what is responsible? How can we fix them? There may be no clear solutions, but there can be progress. Action is necessary to invoke change. As an interdisciplinary artist, much of my work is guerrilla or public intervention. I create objects, drawings, and installations that intend to start either dialogue around themes of gender, class, and race. My work is primarily about white supremacy, especially the ways that white women are complicit in perpetuating it. I take quotes from Confederate monuments and embroider them onto fabric with pearl beads, putting the racists’ words into a contemporary and critical context. I selected materials that would evoke femininity, as well as whiteness and the upper class, which characterized the Daughters of the Confederacy, the group that sponsored most Confederate monuments, and the “Southern Belle” culture.
