Breach is rooted in the music and literature that grew out of the profound racial inequities exposed by the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927. She began this body of work after a 2004 residency at the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans when she was struck by the lack of rebuilding in the flood damaged areas of the Lower Ninth Ward and the Treme. That led her to consider the similarities between Hurricane Katrina and the Great Flood of 1927. With titles such as Silttown Shimmy and Sleufoot Slide, the sculpture, paintings, and prints that comprise this exhibition explore cultural and socio-political issues surrounding African Americans living within the river's reach.

Breach was curated by Michiko Okayo, Director, Lafayette College Art Galleries, Easton, Pennsylvania, All works are courtesy of the artist and L.A. Louver Gallery, Venice, California.
