Precious Lovell: Warrior Women of the African Diaspora

Exhibition Website

Jun 27 2017 - Oct 1 2017

WWAD is an installation of war shirts that celebrate her-stories of seven warrior women from the African Diaspora. Lovell has used the traditional silhouettes of African warrior/hunter shirts as canvases, on which to handcraft cloth with surface embellished details that symbolically honor and protect each woman as a response to the battles she fought.
