She Blinded Them With Science | December 2, 2022 – February 4, 2023 | Opening Reception Friday, Dec. 2 from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. | South Dallas Cultural Center | Free
She Blinded Them With Science continues Andrea Tosten's body of work using text and pattern to explore social constructs, binary thinking, and the nature of existence. Her works on paper incorporate the processes of hand-lettering, drawing, origami and the zoetrope. Working with a minimal amount of materials is important to her to convey a silent strength with a sense of the ephemeral nature of each moment in reflection upon a prominent figure of my culture, Queen Nanny, leader of the Windward Jamaican Maroons, who was almost erased from history.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Andrea Tosten is a calligrapher and a bookbinder. She has a Bachelor of Science in BioMedical Science from Texas A&M University and a Master of Liberal Arts in Museum Studies from the University of Oklahoma. Common themes explored through my work are social constructs, binary thinking, and the nature of existence. Influences include Annette Lawrence, Janine Antoni, Tierney Malone and Glenn Ligon.
This exhibition is free and open for public viewing from Dec. 2, 2022 – Feb. 3, 2023.
Opening reception will be held Friday, Dec. 2 at 5:00 p.m. at the South Dallas Cultural Center.
