Excerpt from Press Release:

“Artist Andrew Cornell Robinson has collaborated with designers, artisans and photographers to create an installation which explores history, identity and class by resurrecting ancestral figures and casting them in a series of humorous queer scenarios. Robinson collaborated with fashion designer Sigfrido Holguin to bring to life Robinson’s sixth great grandfather, a revolutionary war hero, and Holguin’s great grandmother, a Dominican political radical. Couture costumes have been designed and hand crafted for each character which bring to life fictionalized narratives, visual taxonomies and sculptural heirlooms which will be on display for a revisionist history lesson. Works include photography, ceramic and mixed media sculpture, printing and apparel. Robinson’s engagement with material and mythologies articulates his own revision of the world and points a light on assumptions of normalcy and power which we’ve inherited and continue to perpetuate today.”
