The Unknown Heroine
with concurrent exhibit
by Rebecca Vaughan
We are excited to present Sherry Wiggins' most recent project, "The Unknown Heroine." Wiggins initiated a new body of performative photographic works with photographer Luís Branco. This project is based on Wiggins’ intellectual interaction with, and physical embodiment of, French, feminist, surrealist writer and artist extraordinaire Claude Cahun (1894-1954).
We have a concurrent exhibit as part of our "On Our Radar" series, introducing a new body of work by Rebecca Vaughan, "Foundling Textiles" with original works based on textiles from the Foundling Museum. These textiles remnants were used in the 18th century as a means of identifying relationship to children left at the Foundling Hospital (London, UK)
