Michaela Pilar Brown
Currently exhibiting in the Rutledge Gallery
Ms. Brown will discuss her exhbition on display in the Rutledge Gallery. Brown’s exhibition will include photography, sculpture and installation focusing on cultural hierarchies relating to beauty, and how race, gender and history play into these caste systems. Her most recent work explores home as a physical structure and repository for memories. Brown’s work chronicles beginnings, departures and returns to this symbolic yet physical place, believing it to be the genesis where history, memory and myth are joined.
