Peter Blum Gallery presents What Next and Why Not, a solo exhibition by sculptor Joyce J. Scott, a 2016 recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” Grant. Scott’s work draws influence from the diversity of cultures the artist has encountered in her travels from Mexico to West Africa. In particular, it is the craft tradition of these places that she incorporates into her work, whether that be Yoruba weaving techniques or the quilting traditions of the American South. Scott uses craft traditions in her work to explore themes of race, gender, violence, and history in her visually rich, densely beaded sculptures.
