ACP 11 Collaborations Presents Renée Cox
High Museum of Art - Hill Auditorium
Featuring work by: Renée Cox

: Thu, Oct 22, 7pm - 8:30pm

Renée Cox (b. 1960), a Jamaica-born, New York-based artist, is widely acclaimed for her photographic series that provoke, question, and challenge the multi-layered impact of sexism and racial prejudice. Cox, who was initially a fashion photographer, began garnering international attention in the mid-1990s when she began using her own body as the central figure in her work. Her large-format series often feature one of her alter-egos: Rajé, the larger than life superhero wearing a skintight costume with the colors of the Jamaican flag, or Mama, the nude central figure in the Yo Mama series. Through these bold protagonists she heightens the multiple dimensions of black womanhood. Additionally, she articulates her disdain for the ways that black people have traditionally been written out of art history and articulates her deep concern and sometimes outrage for societal injustices.

This program is organized by the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art in partnership with Atlanta Celebrates Photography, the Spelman College Women’s Research and Resource Center, and the High Museum of Art. It coincides with an ongoing exhibition "Undercover" at the Spelman College Museum of Art that includes the work of Renée Cox (through Dec. 5, 2009).

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved. Tickets are available through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000 and online at high.org. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

An ACP Collaboration with Spelman College Museum of Art and the High Museum of Art.
