"The way back home": work from Ariel René Jackson

The Art Galleries at Black Studies presents The way back home, an exhibition that brings together four distinct bodies of work that Austin-based artist Ariel René Jackson has produced over the past five years. The video and mixed-media works on view mine issues of identity and inheritance by considering the nature of what is passed down from previous generations and exploring the stories embedded in the places we call home. Throughout the exhibition, Jackson uses found objects, soil, dried flowers, and other remnants to reference the rural landscape of their ancestral home in Louisiana. These items are interwoven into screenprints of family members and mixed-media allusions to familial farmland, underscoring the roles people and place play in how we define and present ourselves.
