The Space Between, an exhibition by Michaela Pilar Brown
The University of South Carolina School of Visual Art and Design presents The Space Between, an exhibition by Michaela Pilar Brown, on view January 4th – February 5th in McMaster Gallery in Columbia. The Space Between is an exploration of the effects of psychological trauma on physical movement, posture and muscle memory. This body of work is an intense personal exploration of a larger phenomenon of psychological and physical disease among black women and the roots of that disease in the oppression of black American women beginning with the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The exhibition includes a series of photographic prints, a site-specific installation, and a live performance. There will be a reception Thursday, January 21st from 6 to 8pm with a live performance* of Mother Wound at 6:30 and a gallery conversation at 7:15pm. *Please note that the live performance may include nudity and potentially provocative subject matter and situations; you must at least 18 to attend.
