NEW WORK BY JAMIE ROBERTSON
Make for High Ground examines the socio-political and spiritual relationship between Blackness, water, and memory. Robertson uses text, photography and video to explore Black identity, tracking the myriad histories of the Gulf states of Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama through the lens of waterways, both in passage and depth. If the South is a body, where does it carry its memory? If so much racialized violence and Black history has been lost to the history books, how might we remember?
