A Little Bit About Madison
Madison Bailey Trotman is an interdisciplinary artist based in Baltimore, MD working with photography, video, and fiber work. She is currently pursuing a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art, anticipating to graduate in May 2019. Madison has shown in several group shows at MICA and Stevenson University. She is also a member of the Wilgus Gallery, the only student led gallery at MICA. Madison is currently interning 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.
