Joyce J. Scott: A Solo Exhibition

Opens Fri Dec 7, 5:30pm-7:30pm. On view through Jan 4.

In collaboration with Goya Contemporary, the Creative Alliance presents an anthology of works on paper by Joyce J. Scott, one of Baltimore’s most important and influential artists. Scott’s artwork critically engages the viewer through sharp cultural and political satire. Fearlessly addressing life’s despondency with humor and grace, she draws inspiration from history, pop-culture, and her own rich personal biography.

The exhibition will explore dominant themes throughout Scott’s career, including race; sex and violence; tradition and spirituality. Her artwork is in the permanent collections at the Baltimore Museum of Art; The Reginald Lewis Museum of African American Culture; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Art and Design; the National Museum of American Art; and the Smithsonian Institution, among others. Scott received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and a Master of Fine Arts from the Instituto Allende. She is represented by Goya Contemporary.
