Event Details


On Thursday, November 18th at 6:00 PM EST, join us for a presentation and conversation with artist Sarah Sense!


Featured in MoFA’s current exhibition, A Shared Body, Sarah Sense creates photo-weavings with traditional Chitimacha and Choctaw techniques, her photography, and found imagery. Her new work Mississippi and Meshassepi (2021) draws from deep archival and familial research. Referencing various forms of knowledge capture, from the colonial system of mapmaking to the weaving patterns of her Native community, Sense revises the historical record. In these works, 17th and 18th-century records from the British Library are woven with maps and her landscape photographs to confront the impacts of colonial management on the Mississippi River.
