Renée Stout | Ghosts

January 21, 2021 — March 28, 2021

Renée Stout (b. 1958) is a contemporary American artist whose work is renowned for its thought-provoking and emotionally charged reflections on African American heritage and the broader visual culture of the African diaspora. This exhibition will highlight her 2012 portfolio of eleven monotypes titled Ghosts from the Ulrich collection. Through these haunting unique prints, Stout explores the spiritual and medical practices associated with voodoo and hoodoo—syncretic holistic belief systems that have been a part of African American life and worldview for centuries and remain an important cultural touchstone to this day.
