Hudson D. Walker Gallery
Kristy Hughes, Gallery A
“Ghosts and All” is a new body of work by Visual Arts Fellow Kristy Hughes. Referencing a quote by Hilton Als, “Walking proudly into your sunlit hope, ghosts and all, ” these sculptures are a nod to the formative memories of the artist’s past, and a celebration of the continuing potential for change.
Yahna Harris, Gallery B
“Born Into Oceans” by Yahna Harris will be screened in Gallery B of the Hudson D. Walker Gallery.
Please note: The gallery is available to visit from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Please visit the administrative offices to be shown to the gallery.
Yahna Harris, Visual Arts Fellow
Yahna Harris explores love in non-linear time through cinematography and poetry. She is interested in how we view time in the futures reflected back to us through light refractions and in the transmission of generational memory throughout the body via the womb passed on from our ancestors. Harris began her career in the film industry in Boston where she learned a multitude of production positions so she could better make decisions as a cinematographer. She moved to LA where she took a reductionist standpoint with her personal films where her filming process involves very minimal lighting and gear in order to create an on-set environment that allows for vulnerability. Her most recent multi-generational documentary on the Valentine women reflects this process. Harris will continue with this process in her most recent work The Sky, a film that dives into an open relationship between three individuals who question tolerance, self-actualization, addiction through a developing framework of love.
