The Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University features the virtual presentation of Jessica Wimbley: Belle Jet and Cabinet Cards, an in-person exhibition organized in spring 2020 at the College of the Canyons Art Gallery curated by Pamela Baily Lewis.
Belle Jet and Cabinet Cards presents the mixed-media works created over the past seven years, including new videos narrated by the artist that capture her in the process of making her artwork. Literary and popular culture references fuse with historic photographs, family pictures, microscopic images of melanin, printed media, drawing, and painting—resulting in compelling multivalent collaged portraits that explore the complexities of race and narrative in the American imagination.
