The Warehouse Gallery
September 13 – October 27, 2012
Colorado-based Senga Nengudi is a key figure of the Black Arts Movement in the 1970s and 1980s. Known primarily for performance- based art installations, her work focuses on movement and the human body, is multidisciplinary in nature and international in scope, with cultural references to Africa, the African Diaspora, and Asia. For her multimedia, performance-based exhibition Lov U at The Warehouse Gallery, Nengudi explores the physical senses of being human, and includes photographs and video to reflect on the essence of love. Drawn to discarded, everyday materials, the ephemerality of Nengudi’s work is a metaphor for life’s transience.
