Teen Art Chat with Charisse Pearlina Weston

Wed, Mar 24, 2021

Just for teens ages 13–18, a free virtual studio visit with MAD Artist-in-Residence Charisse Pearlina Weston. Teen Art Chats are organized and hosted on Zoom by MAD’s Artslife teen interns. 


Charisse Pearlina Weston’s creative work emerges from deep material investigations of poetics and the autobiographical. She utilizes glass to conceptually embody both the everyday risk of anti-black violence and the precocity and malleability of blackness in the face of this violence. Melding glass sculptures and photography with poetic fragments of black experience, her work examines the interstices of black interiors and intimacies. She reuses and re-articulates materials from past installations to formulate the next to represent both repetition as a symbol of Black cultural production and its reliance on an order of temporal engagement in which the second time encodes an emergent originality.
