vanessa german: running with freedom

The Taft Museum of Art and the Robert S. Duncanson Society are excited to welcome Vanessa German as the 2018 Duncanson Artist-in-Residence.

Vanessa German empowers people through visual art and performance. German’s mixed-media sculptures and reliefs will be featured in the Sinton Gallery and the Longworth Foyer as part of the Duncanson Artist-in-Residence Program. Constructed from found objects including doll parts, antique tins, beads, household items, and other cast-off relics, her “power figures” evoke folk art traditions, religious icons, and African nkisi nkondi—ritual figures carved from wood to embody mystical forces. German’s sculptures bridge the past and the present: antiques mingle with provocative imagery, challenging stereotypes and confronting current issues facing African American communities. Through her work as both an artist and an educator, German seeks to transform lives through the power of art and love.
