We are proud to announce our next resident artist, Laura McMillian, who will be in Chattanooga for the month of March and part of April.
Drawing influence and inspiration from costumes for parties and folk celebrations, McMillian's work is “a complex pastiche of source material including field notes, drawings, video, and sound. I consider storytelling a highly political act where we remember the ways humanity is ceaselessly connected instead of divided...Creating a specific time and place through artistic means was discovered in childhood through my first visit to Mother Goose Village at Rock City and rekindled as an adult when I entered New York’s underground party scene."
McMillian will be using her time in Chattanooga to craft a 'love letter' to Chattanooga with an installation complete with sound, performance, and costume to express her artistic journey that began as a child on Lookout Mountain. Sounds promising! More news coming soon!
