Vanessa German uses paint, mixed media, sculpture, and performance to directly confront racism and violence in today’s society. Based in the Homewood section of Pittsburgh, a neighborhood devastated by drugs and crime on a daily basis, German creates work in response to her life experiences.
For the Everson, German presents a selection of her recent work, including an army of sculptures reminiscent of African Nkisi power figures, which are believed to bestow protection and eradicate evil.
