Southern Review by Bethany Collins

University Galleries reopens February 15, 2019 with Bethany Collins: A Pattern or Practice, “the most comprehensive presentation of artist Bethany Collins’ work to date, presents thirty pieces created from 2012 to 2019. In her drawings, prints, paintings, sculptures, and artist’s books, Collins incorporates fractured or illegible phrases, either punishingly erased or arduously rendered. As Holland Cotter recently wrote in The New York Times, “language itself, viewed as intrinsically racialized, is Bethany Collins’ primary material.” The artist elaborates, “I adore language because of its potential capacity, but if language is biased and not representative of us, it’s bound to fail.””
