Art and Memory
Art and Memory
Healing Body, Mind, Spirit
This chapter focuses on contemporary women artists whose artworks were featured in the Gendered Resistance Symposium, sponsored by Miami University and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. These artists include fabric artist Carolyn Mazloomi, choreographer Nailah Randall Bellinger, spiritualist and medical sociologist Olivia Cousins, filmmaker S. Pearl Sharp, and Catherine Roma. Each of these artists shares her vision of the arts as part of a transformative educational platform and speaks about the role of the artist in conveying stories of gendered resistance. Indeed, several of the artists who participated in the symposium reflect on artistic expression and the process of memory, healing, and transformation, discussing the role of art, dance, poetry, performance, and music as bridges between the past and present.
