American Artist presents solo exhibition Black Gooey Universe at New York’s HOUSING opening January 26 and running to February 16.
Working across video, writing, installation and other new media, the interdisciplinary artist explores “dialectics formalized in Black radicalism and organized labor into a context of networked virtual life” and seeks to reveal dynamics at play and embedded in technology and contemporary culture.
