CHATROOM is an art conversation series featuring Black women and non-binary artists and is free and open to the public. More sitting-in-your-friend's-living-room than panel presentation, CHATROOM exists to facilitate warm dialogue between artists and the community.
Deborah Roberts was born in Austin, Texas in 1962 where she continues to live and work. Roberts makes collages using photographs, magazine clippings, and images from the internet, with a unique visual language evoking African-American womanhood to explore the subjects of beauty, identity and politics. Forcefully confronting the hyper-sexualisation of women, and media's privileging of whiteness and youth, her figures often take the form of young African American girls who she presents with strength and power.
