'Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi'
Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Deborah Roberts creates visually arresting collages that encourage important conversations about girlhood, vulnerability, body image, popular culture, self-image, and the dysfunctional legacy of colorism. Combining found photographs, painting, and drawing, she examines the weight that society places on Black girls. 'Deborah Roberts: The Evolution of Mimi', an original exhibition organised by the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, features more than 50 collages, paintings, and hand-painted serigraphs.
