Event Description

Vadis Turner. Primrose Path Engulfed in Smoke, 2011. Ribbon, clothing, quilts, vintage bedspreads, and mi

The Frist Center will present an exhibit of work by Nashville-born artist Vadis Turner May 26th - September 10th. Turner moved back to Middle Tennessee in 2014 after living in Boston & New York for many years. In her work, she transforms commonplace objects associated with women, such as ribbons & bedding, into bold, textured assemblages that assert the value of female experiences, especially rites of passage. She is interested in challenging conventional gender roles & inspired by the history of women’s creative production, & strives to bring visibility to the often-overlooked handiwork of women in the past while simultaneously pushing this legacy forward. Vadis Turner: Tempest presents objects surrounding three potential phases of a woman’s life: the young Wild Woman, the Mother, & the Elder. This exhibition was organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.
