LaToya Ruby Frazier

Performing Social Landscapes

 

LaToya Ruby Frazier's work takes as main subject her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, a historical steel mill town from America’s Industrial period.
For several years the artist has been documenting the lives of her relatives as witnesses of the economic crisis resulting from the deindustrialization of their environment. The collaboration between the artist's family and herself blurs the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. Frazier uses photography and video to employ themes regarding, the body and landscape, familial and communal history and social activism.

LaToya Ruby Frazier  is the recipient of many awards, including the MacArthur fellowship in 2015. She has exhibited mostly in the United States (MOMA, New Museum New York, the Whitney Biennale Museum or the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art). This exhibition, organized in collaboration with Carré d’Art Musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, France, is her debut solo exhibition at an art institution in France.

Curator : Jean-Marc Prévost
