This artwork was included in the Stacks exhibition of 2011


Stacks, the MAVUNO exhibition presenting in 2011, paid tribute to the famous Black artist Romare Bearden. The title of the exhibition, Stacks, was based on Bearden’s reflections on the influence the smokestacks of Pittsburgh had on his work. Thinking about the idea of stacks as layers, Bearden created work in a collage aesthetic and used color and space all in stacks. Stacks also refers to artistic influence. As artists we stack ideas, techniques and environments. One artist influences another in stacks. Artists share their Bearden inspirations in various ways in this exhibition. Stacks was curated by Alisha B. Wormsley, a resident and teaching artist for many cultural institutions including The Romare Bearden Foundation.
