Join us after Ebony Patterson's Stamps lecture as we welcome the artist to the Institute for the Humanities. Patterson's "of 72" exhibition runs Jan 11-Feb 9.

“What happens when seventy-two men and one woman die and no one knows who they are?” Jamaican artist Ebony Patterson’s "of 72"—a mixed media work on fabric with digital imagery, embroidery, rhinestones, trimmings, bandanas, and floral appliques—considers the 2010 “Tivoli Incursion” in Kingston, Jamaica. This armed conflict between the Shower Posse drug cartel and Jamaica's military and police took place when security forces began searching for drug lord Christopher "Dudus" Coke, after the United States requested his extradition. The violence killed at least 73 civilians.

Ebony G. Patterson is a Jamaican artist born in Kingston, Jamaica. She studied at Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. An assistant professor in painting at the University of Kentucky, she has shown her artwork in numerous solo and private exhibitions and is represented by Monique Meloche Gallery.
