Talking Art, Race and Identity with Bethany Collins
Here's a conversation between WABE's John Lemley, visual artist Bethany Collins, and Arts ATL’s Stephanie Cash, who recently wrote about Bethany for the magazine's “30 Under 30” series. They talked about Collins’s creative process and how she grapples with race and identity in her longest-running series, “White Noise.”
Collins is a visual artist whose work often reflects encounters she’s had regarding her biracial identity. This fall, she travels to New York for a residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
Collins was among the first ten Atlanta artists to be spotlighted in Arts ATL’s series, which seeks to highlight young people making an impact in Atlanta’s visual arts, drama and literary scenes. On City Café, we’ll spend the coming months dropping in on some of the artists highlighted, and the people writing about them.
