Senga Nengudi emerged in the 1970s as one of the most inventive artists bringing together abstract sculpture and performance art. Today she continues to use pantyhose, air conditioning parts, and other salvaged materials to construct poetic environments that meditate on the resilience and vulnerability of the human body and the forces that shape our experiences of the world. With extraordinary examples of sculpture alongside performance photographs and videos, this exhibition offers a focused encounter with Nengudi’s most influential body of work.
“Head Back and High: Senga Nengudi, Performance Objects (1976–2017)” is curated by Christopher Bedford, Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director of The Baltimore Museum of Art, and BMA Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art Cecilia Wichmann.
This exhibition is presented by Art + Practice and The Baltimore Museum of Art. Special thanks to the artist and to Thomas Erben Gallery, New York, and Lévy Gorvy, New York, London, for their generous support of the project.
This solo show by Komla Letsu Phillip is a collective of acrylic canvases painted by the artist in his studio in Ho, Ghana. In his first solo presentation, Komla promotes genuine acceptance of oneself. In a world where we are constantly stimulated, Komla uses his work to express what silence makes him feel. The works depict figures in lively settings with distinctive blue eyes that subliminally signify mental peace.
