Elizabeth Colomba: Repainting the Story
March 12–May 8


Our next exhibition at Art@Bainbridge, opening Saturday, March 12, features the work of Elizabeth Colomba. In her first solo museum exhibition, the colonial-era interiors of Bainbridge House provide an eloquent foil for the artist’s paintings, which foreground historical and fictional Black women, often richly dressed and placed in the opulent spaces from which they have been erased or in which they were assigned subservient roles. Colomba’s radical resettings of established themes in Western art and culture present her heroines—including the biblical Eve, the mythological Danaë, and the model Laure, who posed as the servant in Édouard Manet’s painting Olympia—as central and universal figures. Join us for the exhibition’s opening celebration on Sunday, March 20.




Elson International Artist-in-Residence
Teresa Margolles
Thursday, March 31, 5:30 p.m. (EST)
Friend Center, Room 101 or stream it online


Join us for a conversation with the Mexican multimedia artist Teresa Margolles, the Art Museum’s 2022 Sarah Lee Elson, Class of 1984, International Artist-in-Residence, and Christina León, assistant professor of English. Margolles’s practice explores the connections between marginality and violence, especially in relation to groups that are vulnerable to the devastating effects of social unrest, impoverishment, and urban blight resulting from government corruption. Details and free registration here.
