Virginia Sperry: Spatial Inequity Artist talk on Tuesday, May 30 5-6:30pm
“Spatial Inequity” is a site-specific installation by Virginia Sperry that continues her personal exploration into the complexities of race in America. With this work the artist delves into the inequities and different emotional realities of being American based solely on skin color. From slavery and redlining to infrastructure planning and education, physical space has always been controlled by white people. This control has been (and continues to be) used to create divides in the economic and physical heath of Americans along racial lines. Using walls of sumptuous colorful yarn and hand-made paper sculptures, Virginia physically divides the space so the viewer can experience these differences on a proprioceptive and emotional level. Adding a twist, she flips the color spectrum and creates a new paradigm designed to challenge our assumptions about what is normal.
