Brown F14

Michaela Pilar 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.
 
Born in Bangor, Maine, Brown was raised in Denver, Colorado and currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina.  She studied sculpture and Art History at Howard University and was the Fall 2011 Harvey B. Gantt Artist in Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, a 2012 recipient of an Artist Grant from The Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont and the 2014 recipient of the Artists' Ventures Initiative (AVI) from the South Carolina Arts Commission.
