Revision: Translating Histories at HSA

Revision: Translating Histories draws from historical revisionism to examine how symbols are translated, codified, and questioned across time. Both past events and imagined futures are denatured across multiple retellings, like a game of Telephone where each recipient passes the narrative through their own filters, whether personal or hegemonic, creating increasingly specific interpretations in the process. At each nexus, the listener becomes the teller. The four artists in Revision: Translating Histories engage with cultural ancestries ranging from Haitian migration and Yoruba beliefs to the everyday mythologies of good luck charms and barber capes to craft contemporary portraits of deep-rooted canons.

Artists: Nathalie Jolivert, Aqeel Malcolm, Oluseye, Shaina Yang
