“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
