In this survey of recent work, internationally-recognized poet and visual artist Krista Franklin appropriates image and text as a political gesture that chisels away at the narratives historically inscribed on women and people of color and forges imaginative spaces for radical possibilities and visions. The Fantastic, the surreal, mythmaking, black portraiture and the collective conscious take shape through collage, handmade paper, poetry, letterpress, altered bookmaking and performance.
