my papa used to play checkers, 2023, Solo Exhibition, Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College of Art and Design

Inspired by such indelible traces of a transatlantic cultural continuity and memories of play and creativity, Woods has created an enchanting video, your destination is in a different time zone (2023), as well as a suspended curtain woven from hair and ceramic okra, titled we makin gumbo? (2023). Woods’ visual creations are accompanied by poems written by frequent collaborator and poet, Laura Neal, in response to her work. Original scores composed by Johannes Barfield, another regular collaborator, further enrich this exhibition.
