Daisy Hightower: An Installation by Rosalyn Myles / Craft Contemporary



Daisy Hightower: An Installation by Rosalyn Myles

Craft Contemporary, Los Angeles

January 30, 2022 — May 8, 2022


In this exhibition, Los Angeles-based artist Rosalyn Myles uses the traditional epicenter of family gatherings – the table and tablecloth – as a vehicle to tell her maternal grandmother’s life story. Through a range of fabrics, wall treatments, and domestic wares, Myles creates a visual narrative of Daisy Hightower’s life (1904 – 1980), encompassing her grandmother’s impact on Myles’ own family and reflecting on the shared experiences of many Black American families through those decades.
