Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis
Enjoy a conversation with artist Felandus Thames and curator David Borawski about the exhibit The Things That Haunt Me Still up now at Real Art Ways in Hartford. The show, which runs until May 30, 2021, features Thames’ assemblages that utilize found objects and non-traditional materials like hair beads and barrettes, to explore gender and race. Often asking more questions than offering answers, Thames’ playful use of materials and text utilizes humor as an entry point to exploring social and cultural issues.
