Our own Joy Davis is embarking on a new journey as the Director and curator of Waller Gallery. Waller Gallery is pleased to present its first show featuring Nia Hampton’s first solo exhibition. Entitled Drapetomania the exhibition is an expansive documentation of the artist’s photography within Afro-Latino communities.
Drapetomania was once a medical diagnosis used to explain why enslaved Africans ran away from the plantation. This was a racist and fabricated diagnosis of the human imperative to flee servitude. In her first solo exhibition, Nia Hampton shows the results of her own bout of “drapetomania” after graduating college and moving to Brazil. She captured the following on her journey through South America: environmental racism, African spiritual practices, femicide, black Brazilian feminism, haircut culture, and love. The exhibition opens in Baltimore, Md, Friday, April 13th at 6pm.
