Avery Williamson is a multidisciplinary artist whose work in weaving, photography, painting, and drawing explores the narratives of Black women in personal and institutional archives. Within the archive, women are defined by names, occupations, or skin color. The artist returns to particular images and remakes them in glitter, cloth, or color in order to free these figures from the historical narratives they’ve been embedded into.
