McNay Art Museum presents "Fragments of a Dream"
Akosua Adoma Owusu’s 2007 video Intermittent Delight juxtaposes close-ups of batik textiles, fashion, and design from the 1950s and 1960s, images of men weaving and women sewing in Ghana, and fragments of a 1960s Westinghouse commercial intended to teach women how to decorate a refrigerator. The video touches on the idea of feminism’s uneven geographical and historical development, and the nuances of the labor conditions that women face, depending on where they live. Owusu’s video is complemented by artworks by African American artists drawn from the McNay’s collection.
