Event Description

Artist Bethany Collins will give a free public talk about her work on Wednesday, October 26, at noon at University Galleries. This event is scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition “Strange Oscillations and Vibrations of Sympathy.”
Collins is a multidisciplinary artist who makes work about the critical intersection of race and language. She writes, “For me, racial identity has neither been instantly formed nor conjured in isolation. Rather, identity entangles memory: actual and revisited, cultural and historical, individual and collective. Through the dissolution of dichotomies and exploration of language, this work recalls moments in the formation of my racial identity as Black and Biracial.”

Collins’ work has been exhibited at the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; the Drawing Center, New York; and the Birmingham Museum of Art; among others. She has been awarded the Hudgens Prize, an Artadia award, and a Pollock-Krasner grant, as well as residencies at the Bemis Center, McDowell Colony, and Studio Museum in Harlem.
