Event Details

R3clamation: Routes & Roots, An Installation by Basil Kincaid launches the Hamon Arts Library’s contemporary arts exhibition program for the Hawn Gallery at SMU. Kincaid reclaims seemingly innocuous materials – fabrics, fibers, and even debris – and repurposes them into monumental textile works.

For R3clamation: Routes & Roots, Kincaid fills the gallery with assemblage quilts, sculptures, and garments, comprised of the clutter we encounter daily in our urban communities. By no means static, these art works are worn by the artist, ensuring the body is perpetually present, whether physically or symbolically. Intimately relevant to their place of cultivation, the works become vessels for the black American body, imbued with the West African and American ancestral traditions that are steeped in the artist’s practice. An Opening Reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, October 28th from 6 to 8 p.m. wherein the artist will present a performance art piece and conduct a gallery talk.
