Jirah Perkins is a 23-year-old emerging artist in the Lowcountry. She believes that collective work and responsibility are pertinent in creating a cohesive and understanding being. Perkins experiments through different mediums and styles with a focus on empowering and uplifting women. This exhibition is inspired by the children’s singing and clapping game, “Miss Mary Mack.” In African-American communities, the many hand games played represented a communal expression of upbringing before the systematic erasure of adolescence. "Miss Mary Mack" honors the flair, togetherness and unadulterated joy of black girlhood.
