About the Exhibition: 

Consumption, shame, and guilt, are recurring themes in Madelyne Beckles' work. Using photo-based imagery and readymade objects, she attempts to deconstruct these ideas using a critical race and feminist framework. Building on these links between the personal and the collective, Arrangements explores contexts of consumerism through methods of retail display and the interiority of object fetishism.
