Join Moss Arts Center Exhibitions Program Manager Meggin Hicklin for a virtual exploration of the work of Chakaia Booker, a nationally acclaimed sculptor featured in the center's spring 2020 exhibition, Fierce Women.

Booker has an impressive history of creating large-scale sculptures and public art installations, as well as a notable exhibition and collection record. In a rigorous and physically demanding process, Booker cuts, slices, bends, twists, and weaves discarded rubber tires into audacious, wildly inventive, even radical sculptural forms. At once fiercely aggressive but also beautiful, Booker’s abstract works embody social, political, and cultural meaning that resonates from the universal to the personal, the global to the local, and the natural to the industrial.

Join Moss Arts Center Exhibitions Program Manager Meggin Hicklin for a virtual exploration of the work of Rozeal, an artist featured in the center's spring 2020 exhibition, Fierce Women.

Best known for paintings and prints heavily influenced by the Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking style, Washington D.C. native Rozeal incorporates visual elements of Japanese and African-American cultures into lush and powerful scenes that explore intersections and ambiguities of identity, origins, time, and place.
