The CCA Libraries Exhibition Program presents the solo exhibition Out the Mud by Troy Lamarr Chew II, CCA MFA ‘18. His series Out the Mud references mud cloth from Mali, a handmade cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud and a sign of cultural identity. For Chew, it speaks to the rip in the cultural fabric of African Americans, from the the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, as well as both negative and positive paths taken to repair and continue the fabric. This series also questions the definitions of “Fine Art” and “Folk Art.”
