Press Release

Time
Bass Museum of Art
Miami Beach, FL

The Time exhibition presents a selection of historical and contemporary artworks, objects and artists’ projects that address ideas of time. Lorraine O’Grady’s Miscegenated Family Album (1980/1994) consists of a series of photographic diptychs which juxtapose images of Ancient Egyptian statues of Queen Nefertiti and photographs of O’Grady’s sister Devonia and her family. By pairing these photographs, O'Grady draws parallels between the lives of these two women, living in different time periods.
