Tyanna J. Buie: Picking Favorites
In this exhibition, as in most of her shows, Buie engages in an archaeological dig, of sorts â€“ one of which she continues her digging and boring through bygone years in an ongoing attempt at re-glimpsing and re-experiencing what she can of a girlhood that was largely spent separated from her parents and other members of her family as she was moved into one foster home after another. â€śPicking Favoritesâ€ť has taken the form of an installation where all the objects in the gallery â€“ Buieâ€™s large, palimpsest-like, monotypes, as well as curled, old, black and white photos and other artifacts from her past â€“ are drenched with memories for her that are both sweet and heart-breaking. Exhibition runs April 25 through May 31, 2014.
