Happenings

Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom

Jepson Center
'Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom' consists of a large-scale canopy quilted together from cyanotype reactive fabric squares that were made with the help of workshop participants over the course of Clark’s various residencies. Draped as a night sky overhead, the work offers a celestial viewpoint that encourages us to consider freedom seeking enslaved individuals whose forced labor built the wealth of this nation.

Noel W Anderson: Heavy is the Crown

Jepson Center
The printed works, tapestries, and paperworks on view in the exhibition utilize found imagery from various media and archives that are reprocessed by Anderson through assorted means of distortion and manipulation to collectively expose the haunting relationship of black masculine (mis)representation to structures of power.

Re-Cor-Dare: Sauda Mitchell

Jepson Center
Re-Cor-Dare is a solo #art912 exhibition of Savannah-based artist Sauda Mitchell (American, b. 1981). Mitchell’s prints, paintings, and artist books serve as compelling visual responses to her sustained engagement with archival collection materials. In researching personal papers, photographs, artifacts, and curated digital collections, her work explores thematic topics of study relating to the Black experience. Utilizing QR codes, selected works link to digitized collection materials focusing on their ability as teaching tools recalling stories embedded within the African American collective memory.

Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America

Jepson Center
The rise of America as a world superpower after WWII created a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to construct narratives and react to power.

Sugar

Jepson Center
Explore the sweet culinary habits of Savannahians in this fun exhibition dedicated to the consumption of sugar in the port city. Using furnishings and portraits from Telfair Museums’ permanent collection, this unique display gives visitors a glimpse into humans’ connection to sugar and its complicated history. Porcelain and silver were shipped from Europe and beyond into the Port of Savannah, providing the elite of this city with purchasing options far surpassing those of any inland towns of the 19th century.
