Project Description

Phoebe Boswell will present “The Wake Work,” a series of recent black on black drawings inspired by the writings of Dr. Christina Sharpe and the artist’s recent six-month stay in Italy. These drawings examine the official, publicized narratives and records of the recent deaths of three Black migrants in Italy. Using only press images as source material, these drawings endeavor to recuperate the dignity of the victims and critique the crude spectacle the media’s coverage of the incidents created.
