Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Under-Song For A Cipher

New Museum, 235 Bowery

Curated by Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator, and Massimiliano Gioni, the exhibition presents a new body of works by the British artist, finalist of the Turner Prize 2013. The artist’s brushed figures are almost always black, an attribute Yiadom-Boakye sees as both political and autobiographical, given her own West African heritage. Often immersed in indistinct, monochrome settings, her elegant characters come to life through the artist’s bold brushwork, appearing both cavalier and nonchalant, quotidian and otherworldly.
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye was born in 1977 in London, UK, where she lives and works.
