In the works included in Before I Died I Was Invisible, Kevin Claiborne uses photographic and printmaking processes to address the Black experience in America today. It takes its title from a poem written by the artist. His keen interests in poetry and the hidden as well as multiple meanings in language permeate his work. Claiborne's exhibition comprises two ongoing series: "BLACKNESS IS* 2019, landscape photographs layered with screenprinted text, and "Great Unconformity* 2020, a further exploration of word and photographic imagery through digital collage.
