Olivia Tripp Morrow: Body, Joy, Cage, Scar Artist Talk

Saturday / November 6 / 2pm - 3pm EST

Join AAC resident artist Olivia Tripp Morrow for an artist talk in conjunction with her solo exhibition Body, Joy, Cage, Scar, on view in AAC’s Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery through December 18, 2021.

In Body, Joy, Cage, Scar, Olivia Tripp Morrow’s drawings, embroidery, and video explore the human body as a tool, a worksite, and a raw material. In January of 2020, the artist underwent surgical augmentation to halt a progressive spine disorder. Morrow’s recent work explores her experience of surgery and recovery, as well as the abilities and limitations of her “new” body, while also speaking to broader human experiences of pain, resilience, strength, and vulnerability.

The talk will take place at AAC, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery. Capacity will be limited and masks will be required. The talk is free but advance registration is required.
