Vadis Turner: Tempest

Exhibition Website

May 26 2017 - Sep 10 2017

Frist Art Museum

Nashville, TN

Nashville-born artist Vadis Turner recently returned to the area after living for many years in Boston and New York. In her work, she transforms everyday objects—typically hand-dyed textiles associated with women, such as ribbons and bedding—into colorful and textured assemblages. 

Although largely abstract, many of the works are meant to pose questions about traditional gender roles, the value assigned to materials and heirlooms, and the possibility of metamorphoses.
