On View: May 29 – June 30, 2021

Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1991, Wallace lives and works in her hometown. She holds a B.S. in  Journalism from Bowie State University. She uses her lens, collage, and in situ installations to examine  and demonstrate the cultural, political, and aesthetic narratives of Black life. Her work is focused on the  Archive — making it by nature collaborative with aims to ethically accumulate primary source documents.

Her work and point of view have been featured in The New York Times, It’sNiceThat, the Washington Post, and The Charlotte Observer. She’s been recognized in Baltimore news outlets such as Baltimore Beat for ‘Best Solo Show’ and The City Paper for ‘Best Photographer.

SHAN has exhibited work in acclaimed galleries and museums including The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, CA, and The Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC. http://shanwallace.work/
