CAMILLE BILLOPS (1933 - 2019)
KKK Boutique II.

Etching and aquatint on cream wove paper, 1996. 533x444 mm; 21x17 1/2 inches, full margins. Signed, titled, dated and numbered 22/35 in pencil, lower margin. Printed and published by the Brandywine Workshop, Philadelphia.

Provenance: collection of Anne & Allan Edmunds.

The title and subject of this print relate to the satiric film The KKK Boutique Ain't Just Rednecks, made by Billops and her husband, James Hatch, in the same year. The film addresses the origins, stereotypes, violent histories, and agendas of racism - pressing viewers to confront their own potential for and participation in prejudice toward people who are different from themselves. Other impressions are in the collections of Emory University and the Library of Congress.

Consigned to support the Brandywine Workshop in Philadelphia and its legacy endowment campaign.
