Disruptus is a group show at Vessel Gallery in Oakland.
Cheryl Derricotte's exhibition Ghost/Ships will be on view at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) as past of Women's History Month at MoAD through April 3rd, 2016.
The De Anza College art show, 'Burning Ice,' is a collaboration with the Silicon Valley Reads program, which this year focuses on water and climate change.
From water pollution and droughts to environmental activism, the show encompasses a wide range of climate topics.
Cheryl Patrice Derricotte‘s Ghosts/Ships offers a glimpse into the global African slave trade that is both subtle and direct in its links between past and present, culture and place. Inspired by Fred Wilson’s 1992-1993 project Mining the Museum — in which Wilson paired unlikely images and artifacts for a jolting and honest representation of America’s relationship with slavery — Derricotte mined the British Museum for public domain images related to the global African slave trade, merging them with contemporary mediums.
On display through April 3 at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco as part of their Emerging Artists Program, Ghosts/Ships invites visitors into a world of haunting images and words rendered in glass, paper and video.
Burning Ice will include selections of my past work dealing with environmental themes including “Katrina’s House” (2007), “Future House” (2009) and “Gentrification by Nature: The Tornado Project” with David Naito (2003).
