Deborah Willis and Hank Willis Thomas — mother and son — collaborate with Fo Wilson and her son Dayo Harewood for Progeny Two which opens to Gantt Center members & donors on Friday, October 8 at 6:00 pm and to the public on Saturday, October 9. This exhibition is the first collaborative effort undertaken by the four. Willis and Thomas are photographers. Wilson uses the language of furniture to amplify the human experience and Harewood is a filmmaker. Progeny Two is positioned at the intersection of their practices. The result is a thoughtful medley that highlights the impact of family, history, and memory on the processes of artistic production.
