The College Hill Independent Reviews Art+History

Read Eve Essex’s review of  Art+History for The College Hill Independent.  

Narratives of orientalism, colonialism and slavery are teased from the objects already in the house, and the work acts as a framing or display device… But Slosburg-Ackerman’s tone is extremely conversational, a formal play and activation of contradictions in the space rather than a refusal of them. “It’s very much responding to the things I’ve learned about the place,” she told the Independent, “but then just forgetting it to some degree. The story is more my story.”

Though Herrera-Prats poses as a historian, she makes it plain that her evidence is dubious… Though earnestly displaying the results of her investigation, she is not mastering a historian’s discourse–she is happily struggling.
