Crosstown Arts: Richard Lou – Stories On My Back

Crosstown Arts is pleased to present Stories On My Back, a large-scale multi-media installation incorporating audio, video, digital photographs, and tamale leaves created by Memphis artist Richard Lou. The installation, never before seen in its entirety in Memphis, is an immersive experience alluding to a ceremonial site where people come to share their stories and personal histories. The piece is informed by stories exchanged through the artist’s family: stories told by the artist’s mother and father, the stories he shared with his children, and the stories retold by his children as their own.
