Mixed Metaphors

Mixed Metaphors centers comedian Redd Foxx and his second wife, Betty Jean Harris, in an image that juxtaposes the comic with harrowing political and social concerns. Collaged images of beauty ads are undercut by a persistent underlying potential for violence, manifested in the form of sticks of dynamite.

Jibade-Khalil Huffman

Jibade-Khalil Huffman uses found archival material alongside contemporary ephemera to address slippage in memory and language, particularly when it comes to race and visibility. His installation work (often site-specific) uses video, projections, photographic light boxes and photo collages printed on layered transparencies and paper. Huffman works at the intersection of several disciplines, and he holds an MFA in both the literary arts and studio art.
