New catalogue of work by LaToya Ruby Frazier.
A 2016 residency at MAC’s Grand-Hornu (Museum of Contemporary Arts) allowed LaToya to pursue work on a post-industrial society in Belgium. Her focus was the Borinage, a mining region whose intense activity in the 19th century was diminished by a series of crises that led to the closure of the last mine in 1976. Testimonies gathered by Frazier from the former miners and their families have resulted in And From The Coaltips A Tree Will Rise, an extensive collection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes.
