No Longer Showing.

In Jibade-Khalil Huffman's new video and sound installation, a narrative unfolds across surfaces and screens, revealing and obscuring objects in the gallery space over the course of an hour. By dramatizing our relationship to culture, Huffman examines our affinities for black music, and our expectations for its potential as a tool of resistance. Within this mutable narrative, the characters—waylaid by a contemporary condition that demands a performance of identity, even while those identities are undermined by systems of oppression— seek to enact a kind of utopia. Curated by Lumi Tan. 

November 1–December 15
Opening reception: October 31, 6–8pm


Gallery hours: Tuesday–Saturday, 11–6pm

Jibade-Khalil Huffman: Tempo is made possible with commissioning support from Jerome Foundation; generous support from Anat Ebgi, Los Angeles; annual grants from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, Joseph and Joan Cullman Foundation for the Arts, and The Cowles Charitable Trust; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
