Reading, Pa. – Albright College’s Freedman Gallery will present André Terrel Jackson, Fashioning Identities: Remixed, on view in the Project Space, March 20toApril 22. The exhibition is free and open to the public:
Albright 2013 alumnus, André Terrel Jackson, remixes visual references from history, pop culture, diasporic cultures and his own personal experiences with family and friends in the pursuit of his creative process. Based in fiber, Jackson’s mixed-media works cause viewers to investigate and question assumptions about identity politics. By transforming, juxtaposing and adapting common materials into his works, he examines the contradictions within and forces us to think differently about concepts related to beauty, identity and race.
