Sanford Biggers Presents "Selah" at Marianne Boesky Gallery



Sep 07 2017 - Oct 21 2017


LOCATION

Marianne Boesky Gallery
507 West 24th Street
New York, NY

Marianne Boesky Gallery presents Selah, Sanford Biggers’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. Through symbolic gestures and imagery Biggers creates an experience that highlights often overlooked cultural and political narratives in American History. The artist’s expansive body of work encompasses painting, sculptures, textiles, video, film, multi-component installations, and performance. Biggers’ syncretic practice positions him as a collaborator with the past, adding his own voice and perspective to those who made and used the antique quilts, African sculptures, and cultural imagery he references. His work speaks to current social, political, and economic happenings as well as to the historic context that bore them.
