Bisa Butler: Portraits
Over twenty of Bisa Butler’s large-scale portrait quilts come together in the first museum exhibition devoted to her bold and celebratory works. Quilts have long served as potent bearers of cultural memory and provided a multidimensional narrative of American art and history, and Butler’s contemporary portraits make these facts stunningly evident. This exhibition focuses on both the subjects represented in Butler’s quilts and the material form of their representation, inviting audiences to reconsider historical narratives of quilt making, the conventions of portraiture, and the impact of representation.
