Artist Renée Stout chats with Floyd Hall in this WonderRoot podcast, produced in conjunction with the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art. They discuss her use of alter egos in the creation of her work, the foundations of Hoodoo and conjuring, and how her work connects to and confronts established beliefs in the African American community.
Stout’s exhibition, “Tales of the Conjure Woman,” is on view at the Spelman museum through May 17.
