Torkwase Dyson: UnkeepingMarch 9, 2016-April 12, 2016 At Eyebeam
See the exhibition the New York Times calls “a timely, evocative gambit.” Unkeeping surveys two years of Dyson’s research into minimal geometric abstraction as a system used to deepen our understanding of the built and natural environment. This ambitious work spans modular architecture, data visualization, and black spatial matters under the rubric of environmentalism. For this exhibition she presents drawings, paintings,and sculpture that deconstructs sites such as auction blocks, garrets, lynchings, and sidewalks in order to reconstruct humanist narratives in their place.
