Quenton Baker: Ballast

10/6/2018 through 1/27/2019 | Frye Art Museum

Museums Capitol Hill/Central District

Quenton Baker’s poetry focuses on how black interiority functions under the constraints of an anti-black society. His exhibition at the Frye Art Museum will be an outgrowth of an in-process collection of poems that examines the 1841 slave revolt aboard the brig Creole, using the event as a kaleidoscopic lens through which to consider the position of blackness and the ongoing afterlife of slavery.
