"But Before Bone is Skin" curated by Jonell Logan

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tayari Jones’ book Silver Sparrow is truly the story of women.

Mothers and daughters struggling to find their identities and shed legacies that may not be their own. They are all on a quest to define themselves, often bruising and sometimes tearing their skin along the way as they bump against historical, cultural and familial boundaries.

But Before Bone is Skin, curated by Jonell Logan explores this space of women The path that we take to find peace and resolve in who we are. The artists in the show question and construct internal spaces that are secret, yet teased out and sometimes shared with others. They challenge notions of beauty and the definitions, often prescribed by others, of femininity and propriety. They share their individual questions and journey through womanhood.

Exhibiting Artists: Melissa Alexander, Shanequa Gay, Yanique Norman, Sharon Norwood and Zipporah Camille Thompson
