Opening tomorrow at the Textile Museum in Washington DC: “Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora”. The exhibit includes works on the theme of migration by a number of contemporary artists, including William Adjété Wilson.
Artist William Adjété Wilson’s quilt, “The Black Ocean,” which will be on display in our exhibition, “Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora,” illustrates 500 years of African diaspora and includes West African pictographs. The small fragments of cloth are “a metaphor for telling the story of a larger world." William Adjété Wilson works in Paris, Benin, Togo, and Haiti.
