Families as a series of interrelated subjects
In a manipulated series of monoprints – stitched, painted, stained – Sandra Mayo’s Histories of Consequence (2016-2020) tangles with a global dynamic of geopolitical events. Mayo adopts conceptual strategies like mapping and coding to distill and then visually elaborate difficult events, dominantly human tragedies, that have profound and lasting impacts on individuals, families, and societies over multiple generations. As part of the ongoing Art at Watson initiative, Mayo's exhibit was first available to be viewed in Stephen Robert Hall this winter. Due to Brown's shift to remote learning, we hope the community can continue to engage with her work in this virtual format.
