Emma Amos: Color Odyssey is on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art through January 17th, 2022. Originally shown at the Georgia Museum of Art, the retrospective includes approximately 60 works spanning the entirety of Emma Amos’ (CRF 2013) career.
“Across her prolific career as a pioneering artist, educator, and activist, Emma Amos (American, 1937–2020) created boldly colorful and innovative works that explore the intersections of race and gender in American life. This exhibition [spotlights] her inventive approach to printmaking, painting, and weaving as well as her signature practice of combining distinctive materials and artistic techniques. Amos’s works investigate identity and privilege while unsettling the lines between figuration and abstraction, craft and fine art, beauty and power.”
