Mirages of Dreams Past, an exhibition at Baxter St Camera Club of New York by lens-based mixed media artist, archivist, Alanna Fields, “is comprised of a new series of large-scale mixed-media collages exploring the representation of Black queer desire, sensuality, leisure, and memory… Alanna Fields asks the viewer to look more deeply and closely at tender and quiet moments and to reflect upon memory, intimacy, and vulnerability. Working to create a new archive, the artist explores dreaming and dream spaces as a means of venturing through memory, piercing the historical record’s veil and shining a light on what was hiding in plain sight.”
Tomorrow, Thursday June 3rd, Allen Frame (DG 2021) will join Alanna Fields in conversation via Zoom at 6PM ET. Click here for more information and to tune in for the event.
