From the press release of the current exhibition, Four Women, at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta:
JULY 18TH, 2008 – AUGUST 30TH, 2008
In light of the recent Jackson Fine Art show celebrating the Civil Rights Movement with photographer Bruce Davidson and paying honor to the critically acclaimed exhibitions at The High Museum – Road to Freedom and After 1968 – Jackson Fine Art continues to consider race and relationships in the upcoming show Four Women curated by Charles Guice, owner and curator of Charles Guice Contemporary in Oakland, California. Asking the question – how has the dialogue about ethnicity, family, class, gender and sexuality changed in the last 50 years, Four Women showcases the work of Kianga Ford, Jessica Ingram, Carrie Mae Weems and Deborah Willis as it investigates their perspectives on the complex relationship between family and race – specifically its ongoing evolution in the South.
