A Little Bit About Madison
Madison Bailey Trotman is an interdisciplinary artist based in Baltimore, MD working with photography and textiles. She holds a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Madison has shown in several group shows in Baltimore, MD and has been featured online by Ain’t-Bad. She is also a member of the Wilgus Gallery, the only student led gallery at MICA. Madison had the pleasure to intern with FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, a creative activist collaboration nationally known for producing large-scale public art projects that serve as community healing spaces for survivors of sexual violence.
Madison’s work is concerned with the relationship between identity and place. She pulls from her family’s archive of photographs, journals, and objects to consider about how each holds memories of loved ones. Reflecting on the archive and generational landscapes allows her understand more about her identity, family, and growing up in the South. She wrestles with the meaning of home and how death affects and transforms a family.
