ma ma is pleased to present the work of Houston-based visual artist Elizabeth M. Webb for its opening exhibition.

For Paradise is part of Webb’s ongoing project that examines structures of visibility. By meticulously investigating the triangulated narrative of her family’s history of racial passing, her African-American great-grandmother’s refusal to have her photograph taken, and the Alabama landscape, Webb accesses larger issues around structural erasure and negation. For Paradise will include Webb’s film of the same name and a series of stereographic photographs taken in Alabama that engage in a dialogue around visual legibility and representation.

This will be the first solo presentation of Webb’s work in Canada. In conjunction with the exhibition, ma ma will host a reading group as well as an artist talk on the closing weekend.

Elizabeth M. Webb is currently a fellow in the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and has previously completed the Whitney Independent Study Program and an MFA at the California Institute of the Arts. In 2014, she was the recipient of the inaugural Allan Sekula Social Documentary award.
