About

Ramsess’ mural-scale quilt The Gathering (2012) reimagines Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper (1495-98) as a memorial to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old who was shot and killed on February 26, 2012. This sacred meal is attended by twelve historical figures, one still living: Malala Yousafzai, the Pakastani activist who becomes a symbol for peace, justice, and possibility. With The Gathering at its center, this focused exhibition brings together a selection of Ramsess’s quilted portraits—monuments to individuals of crucial significance to American history whose stories have been suppressed or overlooked through politics of race, age, and gender: Sojourner Truth, Ruby Bridges, Cathay Williams, Malcolm X, H. Rap Brown, Huey P. Newton, and George Stinney.

This exhibition is presented by Art + Practice in collaboration with The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) and is curated by Cecilia Wichmann, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at The BMA.
