In celebration of Point of Contact Gallery‘s concurrent exhibition by multi media artist, Fabiola Jean-Louis, this panel discussion delves into Jean-Louis’ body of work, which addresses complicated layers of self-awareness and what makes up the historical truths we have been taught to accept about race and the roles of women, both past and present.

Jean-Louis’ art questions and thereby magnifies the injustice of the foundational structure of our society while implicitly asking the viewer to make a change. In this way, Rewriting History engages with a vision of the future – one of resilience, and justice. Our understanding of history is malleable and through its continual questioning, we can change the trajectory of the future.
