September 15 - October 3

LISANBY MUSEUM - FESTIVAL CONFERENCE & STUDENT CENTER


Seating: Reserved

Malaika Favorite is a Georgia-based artist who has received national attention for her painting and sculpture. Her use of mixed media and combination of visual and textual elements are informed by African American poetics and history. This exhibition is in cooperation with the 2014 Furious Flower Poetry Conference; it includes Favorite’s work from the past decade, notably her monumental panel painting of 24 African diaspora poets, commissioned in 2004 by Dr. Joanne Gabbin.
