Artists Abigail DeVille and Julie Schenkelberg both create large-scale mixed-media installations to recollect and transform histories of the past into different notions of remembrance and healing.

Their discussion will be facilitated by Jeremy Johnson of the Assembly for the Arts.

About Abigail DeVille
Abigail DeVille creates immersive multimedia installations that focus on storytelling and reviving forgotten narratives and encourage us to rethink the past, present, and future— especially the experiences of Black Americans. Her exhibit, The Dream Keeper, is currently on view at The Sculpture Center.
About Julie Schenkelberg
Julie Schenkelberg’s large mixed-media installations start with furniture, dishware, textiles, and marble, combined with concrete, resin, and construction materials, to transform notions of domesticity, and engage with the American Rust Belt’s legacy of abandonment and decay. Her work seeks to excavate a bygone history embodied in abandoned buildings, objects, lives, jobs and stories. The installations transition the past into new stories of remembrance and healing. Her exhibition, Currant, will be on view at The Sculpture Center October 21 – December 16, 2022.
