Artist Talk with Olivia Tripp Morrow

Artist talks with Olivia Tripp Morrow for Body, Joy, Cage, Scar will take place in person in AAC’s Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery. Capacity will be limited. Masks and registration required. Register online.

Body, Joy, Cage, Scar features new work by AAC resident artist Olivia Tripp Morrow. The artist’s drawings, embroidery, and video explore the human body as a tool, a worksite, and a raw material. In January of 2020, the artist underwent surgical augmentation to halt a progressive spine disorder. Morrow’s recent work explores her experience of surgery and recovery, as well as the abilities and limitations of her “new” body, while also speaking to broader human experiences of pain, resilience, strength, and vulnerability.
