Artist Conversation: Visual Storytelling and the Importance of Introspection


Artist Conversation: Visual Storytelling and the Importance of Introspection

Thursday, April 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm


Friend Center, Room 101

Join the artist Lashun Costor and Sarita Fellows, costume designer and lecturer in Theater at Princeton University, for a discussion about Costor’s use of symbolism to create sculptures and wearable art that critique social and cultural issues in the United States, particularly those she encounters as a Black immigrant woman. Her work reimagines the possibilities of the future for Black women by reconceptualizing stories from Black women in the past and the present. One of Costor’s costumes appears in Elizabeth Colomba’s video Cendrillon, featured in the exhibition Repainting the Story, on view at Art@Bainbridge. Introduced by Laura Giles, Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970, Curator of Prints and Drawings.
