Southern Prize Spotlight: Stephanie J. Woods of North Carolina
Sorry, looks like no contributors are set
The concepts surrounding Stephanie J. Woods’s art are rooted in African-American culture, but the questions she raises are universal. Working in photography, sculpture, film, collage, and installation, the Charlotte-based artist asks us to consider how gender roles, racial signifiers, and beauty standards become social norms.
Woods received her MFA from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. She was the 2017 North Carolina state finalist for the inaugural Southern Prize given by the Atlanta organization South Arts, as well as a 2016 North Carolina Arts Council Fellow.
Burnaway’s bi-weekly news roundup includes the announcement of a fellowship program for U.S. Latinx artists supported by the Ford and Mellon foundations, the High Museum's upcoming exhibition exploring the rise of self-taught artists, and more.
What would a museum look like if it focused on the fictions of modern history rather than its facts? The Colombian curator, David Ayala-Alfonso, forms an answer in his exhibition on view in Savannah, GA.
