Goldwasser Residency Gallery Reception: Charmaine Minniefield
The Stuart A. Rose Library welcomes Atlanta based artist and activist Charmaine Minniefield for a yearlong residency. Minniefield’s project, “Remembrance as Resistance: Digitally Mapping the Ring Shout,” leverages technology, historical research, memory, movement, sound, and space to recognize the recently discovered unmarked graves in the African American Grounds of Atlanta’s Oakland cemetery.
Minniefield’s residency culminates in a site-specific installation that engages the Emory and Atlanta communities in an examination of place and space as central to identity formation through the traditional African American worship and gathering practice of the Ring Shout.
The Goldwasser Residency Gallery Reception for Minniefield takes place on Nov. 21, 2019 at 5pm in the Visual Arts Building.
