Traces presents a variety of works from Charleston based interdisciplinary artist Fletcher Williams III. Williams III’s theoretical and conceptual art-making practice is rooted in a southern vernacular, which he finds essential to documenting the unweaving of Charleston’s social and cultural fabric. Incorporating his studies of ritual theory through the lenses of anthropology and sociology, Williams III creates multimedia objects and installations that explore historical and contemporary African American narratives of culture and utility that are unique to the South Carolina Lowcountry.

"It is difficult to admire the landscape and architecture of this small city for too long without bits of its haunting past bubbling to the surface." - Fletcher Williams III
