Tschabalala Self: Inside Out
February 25, 2023 - June 18, 2023
Kunstmuseum St. Gallen:
Museumstrasse 32, 9000 St. Gallen, Switzerland

Self paints with various pigments, materials, textiles, and threads, drawing from her personal experiences as a Black woman to render bodies often exalted and excluded within her imagined environments. “Collective fantasies surround the Black body and have created a cultural niche in which exists our contemporary understanding of Black femininity,” she says. “My practice is dedicated to naming this phenomenon.” For her most diverse presentation at a museum yet, the Harlem-born artist reveals 19 canvases that exemplify her artistic growth along with several new sculptures that bring her paintings into the third dimension.
