Spoiler Alert: Pam Marlene Taylor

In this timely exhibition, the artist mourns those lost to the Covid-19 pandemic while highlighting the inequalities exhibited in medical treatment for women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals and those in poverty.

Pam Marlene Taylor’s newest tapestries, which are created on hand-built looms, focus on themes of loss and grief, with visual references to mourning wreaths and funeral floral arrangements. The exhibition’s title, Spoiler Alert, warns viewers of the impending “plot twist” that all people will eventually confront death. In this timely exhibition, the artist mourns those lost to the Covid-19 pandemic while highlighting the inequalities exhibited in medical treatment for women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals and those in poverty.

The all-new series is made from palm raffia and wool roving, meant to represent ash and bone in the works. Throughout the exhibit, Taylor has woven in artificial flowers as a nod to immortelles, the arrangements of dried or artificial flowers made to be placed on graves in cemeteries.

Spoiler Alert opens in conjunction with OZ Arts’ return to live performance with the dance installation PRISM (March 12-28). In-person appointments to view the work can be scheduled by emailing Artistic Associate Daniel Jones at daniel@ozartsnashville.org.
