CLARISSA SLIGH Transforming Hate: An Artist’s Book
photo-text images, artists’ books and installations.
Excerpt from the foreword:
I am a black woman. I am an artist. For many years I have been creating work to bring issues of social justice into the public discourse.
This book evolved from a project for which I folded origami cranes from pages of white supremacist books for the exhibition, Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate. It was organized by the Montana Human Rights Network and the Holter Art Museum in Helena, Montana and opened in 2008.
