MoAD Emerging Artists presents Rodney Ewing
Longitude + Latitude
Re-examining complex and marginalized social histories, Rodney Ewing presents Longitude and Latitude, an installation of mixed media works on paper created during his residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts and the Djerassi Resident Artists Program. Exploring social and historical narratives of forced migration or displacement, Longitude and Latitude considers mnemonic geography and the intersections of body, place, and memory within the African diaspora.
Rodney Ewing’s drawings, installations, and mixed media works focus on his need to intersect body and place, memory and fact to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and events. With his work he is pursuing a narrative that requires us to be present and intimate. His work has been exhibited at Euphrat Museum of Art, Cupertino, CA; The Drawing Center, New York, NY; and in San Francisco, CA at Root Division, Jack Fischer Gallery, San Francisco Art Commission Gallery, Nancy Toomey Fine Art, Alter Space Gallery, and Ictus Projects. He has been an Artist-in-Residence at Recology and the De Young Museum of Fine Arts both in San Francisco, as well as Djerassi in Woodside, California. Ewing received his BFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University and his MFA in Printmaking from West Virginia University.
This exhibition was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
