The Unobskey Visiting Artist: Laylah Ali

Event Information
Goucher College is pleased to welcome to its campus the 2018-19 Nancy G. Unobskey Visiting Artist in Modern and Contemporary Art, Laylah Ali. The Unobskey Fund brings internationally recognized artists to Goucher's campus and provides students with meaningful and significant access to the fellows via exhibitions, studio visits, and lectures. Widely known for her iconic series, the Greenheads, which was the subject of a traveling museum exhibition from 2012-13, Ali explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. The precision with which Ali creates her small, figurative, gouache paintings on paper is such that it takes her many months to complete a single work. In The Acephalous Series, Ali has introduced a fraught community of figures, including those with minimal bodies, some who lack heads, and others who appear to be on an endless, determined trek. Laylah Ali has had solo exhibitions at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, IL; the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, amongst many others. Her work has also been featured in the PBS series on contemporary art, Art21. This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Contact Goucher's Box Office at 410-337-6333 or reserve online.
