Lecture Title: Mooning
Paula Wilson will discuss her multimedia practice that intermixes layered collage, installation, video, painting, and printmaking. Her subject matter is equally multifaceted. Drawing her inspiration from cultural and natural histories, she reimages and reconstructs her worldview as a biracial Black woman. Her work often bursts from the wall or frame, a constant re-assembly of lived experiences: black and white, urban and rural, traditional and contemporary, singular and collective. Wilson will also speak about her relocation in 2007 from New York City to the high desert town of Carrizozo, New Mexico (population 996).
