Galerie Lelong: Dialogues

Join a conversation with artists Adebunmi Gbadebo, Samuel Levi Jones, and Tariku Shiferaw moderated by critic Seph Rodney on the embedding of social and political concerns within formal abstraction.

Gbadebo, Jones, and Shiferaw belong to a new generation of Black artists who are pushing the language of abstraction while retaining their cultural specificity; a movement that Rodney identified in a 2017 essay for Hyperallergic. Coming of age in a period when the consciousness of racial violence had reached a national scale, these artists address injustices toward minorities in their practices, charging their abstractions with a message for social change.
