Alabama Contemporary Art Center


Adee Roberson is concerned with visual representations of landscape, emotion, and memory as they concern the diasporic movements of black people. Through abstract paintings, soft sculptures, and video, Roberson offers a refracted timeline of black movement.

Speaking about her work, Roberson states that it “explores movement and migration as channeled through my experience of being second generation Jamaican living in the U.S…I have been creating around the profundity of black movement and the un/making of home.  Using sound, color, sculpture, and family archives, I piece together my specific story of home and migration. The objects and visuals created would then become a part of my family legacy and archive.”

Roberson has exhibited and performed at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Antenna Gallery, Project Row Houses, Charlie James Gallery, Contemporary Art Center New Orleans, MOCA Los Angeles, and Art Gallery of Windsor, Ontario.
