Join us for a conversation with McColl Center artist-in-residence Bethany Collins. The artist will discuss the new work she has been creating during her residency.
New works by Bethany Collins, 2018
Through translation and transposition, drawing and installation, Collins’ exploration considers multiplicities and contradictions in language as a lens for considering racial identity. As Holland Cotter noted writing in The New York Times, “language itself, viewed as intrinsically racialized, is Bethany Collins’ primary material.”
Collins’ works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationwide, including the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Drawing Center, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the Birmingham Museum of Art. Collins has been recognized as an Artist-in-Residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem, the MacDowell Colony, the Bemis Center, and the Hyde Park Art Center, among others. In 2015, she was awarded the Hudgens Prize.
