Hue Live Online Event: Unearthing Forgotten Histories: A Studio Visit with Noted New York Artist Abigail DeVille

April 23 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Abigail DeVilleIn this virtual Hue Live event, Hue Managing Editor Alex Joseph visits internationally renowned artist Abigail DeVille at her studio.

Maintaining a long-standing interest in marginalized people and places, New York-based Abigail DeVille creates site-specific immersive installations designed to bring attention to these forgotten stories, such as with the sculpture she built on the site of a former African American burial ground in Harlem.

DeVille often works with objects and materials sourced from the area surrounding the exhibition site, and her theatrical aesthetic embodies the phrase, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Though collected objects are essential to her installations, DeVille’s priority is the stories her installations can tell. DeVille’s family roots in New York go back at least two generations; her interest in the city, and her work about it, is both personal and political.
