Ebony G. Patterson’s solo exhibition Ebony G. Patterson . . . while the dew is still on the roses . . . has transformed the galleries.
She will deliver the Annual Rothschild Lecture. Patterson will talk about how her work investigates forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities and break down themes of violence, masculinity, visibility and invisibility within black youth culture globally. The exhibition includes work Patterson has produced over the past five years, embedded within a new installation environment that references a night garden.
