Prama Artpace and Gallery is excited to host an exhibition of work by Gina Washington.

Monday’s Child is an archaeological dig into a family, identity, expectations, and the dualistic nature of Black Identity in America. This project will consist of photographic portraits manipulated through collage techniques, hand weaving, and embedded augmented reality. The images will illustrate the poem “Monday’s Child.” Each person represents their born day. The hand-building/weaving of each picture connects to the physical process of raising children, and the objects collaged will directly represent the people no longer present.

Monday’s Child is supported by The Satellite Fund, which is administered by SPACES and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program. The show runs from September 23 through October 16.
