Fictions is a survey of recent work by nineteen emerging artists of African and Latin American descent who live and work across the United States. The artists in the exhibition engage with a variety of media-including video, photography, drawing and sculpture-with some combining multiple artistic practices to create large-scale installations. They draw inspiration from diverse sources-such as childhood memories, current and historic events, and the body-often creating parallel or alternate narratives that complicate fact, fiction, and memory. The exhibition is the fifth in a series of emerging artist exhibitions presented by the Studio Museum, following Freestyle (2001), Frequency (2005-06), Flow (2008) and Fore (2012-13).
