Oglethorpe University will feature a new site-specific, mixed-media installation by Atlanta artist Shanequa Gay where she places Black girls at play within whimsical landscapes evoked by childhood memories of her hometown with dreamlike works that incorporate folklore, 80s cartoons, Disney tropes and fairy tales alongside Black Women’s cultural production, William Bouguereau’s peasant girl paintings as reference and trap music as fodder. The exhibition “shanequa gay: thought and memory” is the culmination of Gay’s 2022-2023 residency at Oglethorpe University.
