Event Description

Exhibition Hours: Tues–Fri, 12-6pm; Sat 11–6pm FREE

This solo exhibition presents the New York premiere of Simone Leigh’s most recent sculptural explorations of materiality, women’s work, and Afrofuturism. Leigh is known for her archaic, anthropomorphic forms in porcelain, terracotta, tobacco, glass, and steel that employ early African ceramic techniques to evoke contemporary parallels and underlying social and economic conditions. For You Don’t Know Where Her Mouth Has Been, Leigh draws from a diverse range of influences, from early African-American face jugs and the manifesto of Africobra to Star Trek and Gilbert and Sullivan in order to evocatively explore the slippages between the multifarious cultural, political, and colonial histories that have laid claim to marginalized bodies.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a special event takes place in the theater on Monday, February 13, 7pm.

This exhibition is made possible with support from Dedalus Foundation Inc., the Jerome Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
