TYANNA J. BUIE

On view now!

Im•Positioned: Photographs and other material evidence of Tyanna Buie’s disrupted childhood are rare. In these new works, Buie continues to rely on the collective memory of her family to make connections between the past and present. She gathers memorabilia and re-visits and revives previous impressions from familial accounts and recollections to create large-scale monotypes and screen prints. For Im•Positioned, Buie places these personal investigations in a larger context, responding to the work of other artists in residence at Lynden for Call & Response: echoing the family references in Folayemi Wilson’s Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities and capturing Reggie Wilson’s bodies in motion. Buie was a 2012 Nohl Fellow, and this exhibition has been organized in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of the Nohl Fellowship.
