Southeast Debut of New Work by Deborah Roberts at the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art Opens January 2018

“Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi,”an original exhibition organized by the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, features more than 50 collages, paintings, and hand-painted serigraphs. Roberts creates visually arresting collages that encourage important conversations about girlhood, vulnerability, body image, popular culture, self-image, and the dysfunctional legacy of colorism. Combining found photographs, painting, and drawing, she examines the weight that society places on Black girls.

The exhibit will be on view January 25 –May 19, 2018. The opening reception is Thursday, January 25, at 6:30 p.m. that will include a conversation with exhibition curator Andrea Barnwell Brownlee, Ph.D., director, Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and artist Deborah Roberts

The Spelman College Museum of Fine Art is located on the first floor of the Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Academic Center. For more information visit Spelman.edu or call 404.270.5607.
