About the Artist: “Jamaica-born Ebony G. Patterson challenges who holds the power to determine and frame a life as 'of value.' In her when they grow up series, Patterson creates collage and installation-based portraits of children in adolescence, which function both as memorial to the deceased and shrine to martyred saints. Appalled by the way in which child victims of color are treated with a lack of empathy, dismissed, and even implicated by society and the media as the cause of their own deaths, Patterson reclaims the humanity of her subjects while reminding the viewer of their innocence. Surrounding her portraits with purposefully overemphasized tokens of childhood, Patterson examines the tenuous relationship between race and age when converged with public perceptions of innocence and guilt, or blame. Using post-production to enhance their rosy glows, Patterson recasts her subjects as cherubs, who through their glitter remain precious as gold ...” — Read more: Rachel Uffner Gallery

Event Description: “Exhibition: 'Deconstructing Liberty: a Destiny Manifested' curated by Marisa Caichiolo, will bring into dialogue new and recent work by contemporary artists living and working across Latin America, including artists from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, and Venezuela.

Through performance, installation, video, and photography, the artists will respond to a variety of local political dynamics, from treaties that expanded U.S. territories to the recent normalization of U.S. relations with Cuba under the Obama administration, and directly confront subjects such as religion, liberty, freedom from unreasonable searches, jury trials, due process, freedom of the press, and freedom of speech. Together, these diverse artists and their bold works will create a space for reflection and new understandings of collective political identification.
