AUG 23 | 'BLACK DOLLS' ARTIST TALK - FREE EVENT
Wed, August 23 @ 7pm
Vivid Solutions Gallery inside of the Anacostia Arts Center (1235 Good Hope Rd SE)
In the Black Dolls series, Linguet manifests scenarios of magic realism to visualize the lived experiences of those in his home, French Guiana, re-contextualizing life under a global system of white supremacy. The women in Black Dolls stand and sit in lingerie, residing in a mix of natural and man-made environments, and always confronting gaze of the viewer.
Mirtho Linguet began studying the art of photography in the early 1990s at the MI21 School of Photography in Montreuil, France. He later moved to Zurich, Switzerland to build on his skills and became a highly sought after magazine photographer, working with GQ, Vogue, FHM, Cosmopolitan and many others over a span of 8 years.
Exhibition: August 18 - October 7, 2017
