Ulrich Virtual Artist Talk: Renée Stout

Renée Stout is a contemporary American artist whose work is renowned for its potent reflections on African American heritage and visual culture of the African diaspora, encouraging self-examination, self-empowerment, and self-healing. The Ulrich exhibition Renée Stout: Ghosts features Stout’s haunting prints that explore the ideas and visual language of Haitian Vodou and American Voodoo and Hoodoo. Stout grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 1980. In 1985 she moved to Washington, D.C. and began to explore the roots of her African American heritage. The lives of Stout’s imaginary characters unfold in a variety of media, including painting, mixed media sculpture, photography, and installation. The recipient of awards from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Stout has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, and in England, Russia, and the Netherlands.
