Tschabalala Self : Thigh High

2 Oct 2019–9 Nov 2019


The second exhibition by American artist Tschabalala Self. The exhibition features new paintings, sculpture and an animation that continue to foreground Self’s exploration into the cultural expectations placed upon the gendered and racialised body. Through her use of form and function, Self parses the iconographic significance of the Black female body in contemporary culture. In Thigh High, the garments, shoes and accessories worn by the figures add a layer of complication to their form.
