Event description
AAC resident artist Olivia Tripp Morrow gives an artist talk in conjunction with her solo exhibition "Body, Joy, Cage, Scar".

About this event

Join AAC resident artist Olivia Tripp Morrow for an artist talk in conjunction with her solo exhibition Body, Joy, Cage Scar, on view in AAC's Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery through December 18, 2021.

In Body, Joy, Cage, Scar, Olivia Tripp Morrow's drawings, embroidery, and video explore the human body as a tool, a worksite, and a raw material. In January of 2020, the artist underwent surgical augmentation to halt a progressive spine disorder. Morrow’s recent work explores her experience of surgery and recovery, as well as the abilities and limitations of her “new” body, while also speaking to broader human experiences of pain, resilience, strength, and vulnerability.

The talk will take place at AAC, in the Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery. Capacity will be limited and masks will be required.
