In/Visible Men/d

Drawings on paper

The In/Visible Men/d series was a site-specific installation of life size cut out graphite renderings of Black individuals occupying a space often where their presence has been considered undesirable. The juxtaposition of life size graphite cut out figures in actual spaces emphasizes the politics of color, architecture, race and hierarchies.

Chris Friday lives and works in Miami, FL. Received a BFA from New World School of the Arts and an MFA from Florida International University. She is a multi-disciplinary artist. Friday challenges the notion that Black bodies are a blemish that needs to be removed, covered up from view.
