Cheryl Derricotte Mines the Museum for Haunting Images of Slave Trade

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.
