The VRC has just added over 30 images of pieces by Ellen Gallagher (b. 1965, Providence, RI) and there's even more to come next week!
Gallagher's work examines the development of African-American stereotypes [partly by incorporating pop culture ephemera and postwar-era advertisements for wigs, hairstyles and skin products particularly aimed towards African-American women] while also emphasizing artistic formal processes and materiality through various mediums. LEARN MORE ABOUT HER HERE!
Make sure to check back on MDID to see the other truly awesome artworks we have added by her.
Also, don't forget you can browse the numerous books we have on her at the Library.
