Bethany Collins at GSU Welch

The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design Gallery presents “(Unrelated),” on view February 20-24, 2012. The public is invited to an opening reception on Thursday, February 23, from 6-8 p.m. (Unrelated), an MFA exhibition by Bethany Collins, recalls moments in the formation of racial identity.

Connected by an obsessive preoccupation with text, “(Unrelated)” is yet another attempt to navigate the binary paradigm of race in the American South by defining and re-defining the artist’s own racial landscape.

Collins’ work continues to evoke a longing for what author Rebecca Walker refers to in her autobiography as “a memory [to] remind me at all times of who I definitely am … the black outline around my body that everyone else seems to have.”
