Intro
Throughout her illustrious career, Joyce J. Scott has garnered numerous accolades, including a McArthur Fellowship (2016) and four honorary doctorates. To honour Scott for her accomplishments, Mobilia Gallery has organized a travelling exhibition of thirty-five beaded objects by Scott expressing contemporary issues and concepts. Each object is a unique, vibrant, challenging work of art done with imagination, wit, and sly humour. Scott pushes the boundaries of beadwork, reflecting the artist’s narrative of what it means to be Black in America.
