About The Exhibition

An interior image with black and white checkered floors and blue walls with a variety of paintings and objects hung and leaned against it. In the foreground, a figurative soft sculpture resembling a Black person in a black dress stands upright. Behind them, a clothesline in the background hangs a series of matching blue and red boxers.
