And Still I Rise
(Media Arts Room)

back to current exhibition

Marking the artist's fifth solo exhibition with the gallery, Bunny Burson presents an video work with music by MILCK titled And Still I Rise 2017 (3:00 min.).

The video was inspired by her installation in the Bruno David Gallery's Window on Forsyth last spring (2017). They contain the confetti, which never fell from the Javits Center ceiling on election night, November 8, 2016. They motivate us to act, to vote, to resist. Through her artwork, Burson speaks politically and poetically to engage the viewer and to stimulate dialogue about the important issues we face.

Bunny Burson, born in Memphis, TN., received a B.A. in French from Tulane University, which included a year at the Sorbonne in Paris. She earned a B.F.A. from the Memphis College of Art and an M.F.A. from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including in New York, Memphis, Snowmass, Colorado, Nashville and Leipzig, Germany. Awards include an artist residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts-Washington University in St. Louis Award for Distinction.
