About the Event:

SANCTUARY: KATHY Y. WILSON LIVING IN A COLORED MUSEUM December 1, 2017 - January 28, 2018Opening Reception: Friday, December 1, 2017 from 6-8PMKathy Y. Wilson (Cincinnati, OH) is an acclaimed writer, performer, educator, and art collector largely known for her provocative column “Your Negro Tour Guide” (published for eight years from 2000-05 and again in 2013-16 in the Cincinnati alternative newspaper CityBeat) and later adapted as a book and one-woman play. Within her East Walnut Hills apartment Wilson has amassed a museum-like collection of locally made art, racist objects, and antebellum era collectibles alongside family photographs, and other ephemera, displayed as a densely packed installation serving as a personal scrapbook of social commentary and inspiration for her writing. In Sanctuary, independent curator Emily Buddendeck (Cincinnati, OH) borrows extensively from this highly personal assemblage to recreate a sense of Wilson’s home environment in an installation in the Weston’s East Gallery, revealing the depth of character of this exceptionally talented writer and performer. Reading by Kathy Y. Wilson and Lecture by Dr. David Pilgrim: Sunday, January 14 at 1-3 p.m. (Ticketed event in the Fifth Third Bank Theater followed by a free Sunday Salon with the speakers in the Sanctuary exhibition in the Weston Art Gallery from 3-5 p.m.).
