Artist Renee Stout, known for mixed--media installations that suggest a theatrical, yet highly personal narrative ---- often centering on her alter ego, Fatima Mayfield ---- has, in almost 30 years in Washington, become an institution. On Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m., the Greater Reston Arts Center will open a new exhibition of Stout’s work.
Alongside Stout’s pieces, GRACE will showcase the work of North Carolina artist Odinga Tyehimba, as well as the fruits of a recent collaboration between the two artists, who met in 2012 during a group show at Raleigh’s Gregg Museum of Art and Design. Called “Incubator,” the Reston show will highlight affinities between the pair, whose partnership reveals a common fascination with power, ancestry, history and belief.
