The University Art Gallery is delighted to present the collaborative project Woven Wind, created by Vesna Pavlović (coordinating artist), Courtney Adair-Johnson and Marlos E’van (oral histories project), Mélisande Short-Colomb (descendants facilitation), Rod McGaha (sound), Jan Hillegas (genealogist), and Woody Register (historian).
Woven Wind deploys photography and video, sculptural installation, music, genealogical research, oral histories, and ceramics workshops to read past Sewanee’s Lovell-Quitman family archive. It does so in order to amplify the voices of the enslaved and their descendants, and it does so so that we might remember together, and work towards community and healing in the present.
Woven Wind will be on view in the UAG from August 23 through October 11, 2023.
Please join us September 20 in Guerry Auditorium at 5 p.m. for a panel discussion with the artists!
