Riché Dianne Richardson: Portrait of the artist
A 20 minute documentary about quilt artist Riché Richardson
Riché Richardson's comments are augmented by an expert of African American quilts, Patricia Ann Turner , who was also interviewed while in Paris. Also a Professor at UC Davis, Patricia Ann Turner knows Riché as a colleague and friend. She has written Crafted Lives:
Stories and Studies of African-American Quilters (to be published by the University of Mississippi Press in 2009), about a group of influencial African American quilters in the present cultural field, among which Riché Richardson is featured prominently.
The film evokes Riché Richardson's artistic technique inspired by photography and the historical themes she explores. The two women talk about Josephine Baker in relation to the Venus Hottentot, Simone de Beauvoir and her feminist philosophy, Martin Luther King's humanitarian message and the politics of the Kennedy brothers, symbolically brought together by their tragic ends, the Civil Rights Movement, Rosa Parks' struggle and the Montgomery bus boycott.
Riché Richardson's and Pat Turner's words are richly illustrated by images and music related to the historical and cultural references given throughout the documentary.
