Detail of “Madan Sara,” 2023, Repurposed wood, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), wood glue, 72 x 48 x 1.25 inches, by Ato Ribeiro.

ATLANTA, GA.- “Marking the 20th anniversary of my relocation to Atlanta from Accra, Under Her Canopy serves as a reflection of the people, the histories, and the cultural fabrics that I continue to learn from and share in. These works are a collection of stories, fragmented and fused together with room for the addition of narratives to come. This exhibition also celebrates the many ways that women—within my family, and beyond—continue to enable and inspire my creative practice.

This assemblage of histories pays homage to my great (x3) grandmother Priscilla (Marshall) Young, interactions with griots and my desire to share space and stories with Madan Sara in Haiti. The materials that make up these works are the same ones that make up the hard and soft woods hidden behind white gallery walls. Here, they are optimistic for the future because they know from whence they came.” -Ato Ribeiro
