Diana Al-Hadid: Archive of Desires

Until February 6th | Henry Art Gallery

Diana Al-Hadid‘s work explores the interplay between the female body and the European art canon; Syrian, Muslim, and immigrant stories and mythologies; and architectural icons and nature. Born in 1981 in Aleppo, Syria, and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Al-Hadid creates works of art that express her interest in the merging of cultures and the translation of different narratives. This monographic exhibition in Henry Art Gallery will consist of a selection of 13 sculptural works that were created between 2010 and 2021 and will be grouped into an interpretive group for the first time. Together, the sculptures identify the artist’s engagement with historical, mythological and biblical narratives by women as a fundamental path of her practice.

Wrapped black: Derrick Adams and Barbara Earl Thomas

Until May 1st | Henry Art Gallery

Packaged black unites the work of artists Derrick Adams (born 1970, Baltimore, MD) and Barbara Earl Thomas (* 1948, Seattle, WA) in a collaborative, multimedia installation that was developed from their mutual dialogue about representation, black identity and practices of cultural resistance. This exhibition is a synthesis of a multi-year, cross-generational and transnational exchange between Adams, who lives in New York, and Thomas, who lives in Seattle, which began after the two artists exhibited side by side in a group exhibition at the Savannah College of Art and Design in the year 2017.
