Contemporary Support Council members and special guests are invited to a join us for a studio visit with Woody De Othello (b. 1991), a Miami-born, California-based artist whose subject matter spans household objects, bodily features, and the natural world. Everyday artifacts of the domestic, such as tables, chairs, television remotes, telephone receivers, lamps, and air purifiers, as well as other items, are anthropomorphized in glazed ceramic, bronze, wood, and glass. Informed by his Haitian ancestry, Othello also takes interest in the supernatural objects of Vodou folklore, nkisi figures, and other animist artifacts that inspire him. Refreshments will be provided during the visit.
