Video: Tschabalala Self in conversation with Ziba Ardalan16 January 2017
This is a unique opportunity to hear US artist Tschabalala Self in conversation with Dr. Ziba Ardalan on the occasion of her first UK solo exhibition at Parasol unit.
Self's expressive and dynamic works, which include painting, print, collage and sculpture, depict the human figure. The fluidity of movement and exaggerated form of her images are quick to capture the attention of viewers and elicit a vivid response. Primarily concerned with the concept of the Black female body within contemporary culture, Self examines the confluence of race, gender and sexuality through a variety of forms and narratives in which each subject – or as she prefers, character – expresses an individually powerful identity.
Tschabalala Self's solo exhibition at Parasol unit continues until 12 March 2017.
