The works in "Quilted Chronicles: Targeted Populations" are fiber and mixed media works that comprise a body of images. The exhibit utilizes these art images as documents to capture individual and public memory that is not only particular to African Americans, hemispherically American and universally global community memory.
The “Historic Chronicles” series highlights stories of 19th century activism in America that continue to challenge our notions of the black experience, while the “Target” series invites the viewer to use this backdrop of history as a foundation to contemplate current questions of social justice in the urban “now” environment and analogous communities.
"Quilted Chronicles: Targeted Populations" is on exhibit in UMass Boston's Harbor Gallery from October 26 through November 25.
Meet artist L'Merchie Frazier at the opening reception on November 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. The William Monroe Trotter Institute for the Study of Black Culture connected Frazier to campus.
