Exhibition: Laylah Ali: Artist-in-Residence

Jan 10 - Mar. 4

The Studio Art Exhibition Program at Dartmouth College presents Drawings, an exhibition of work by winter Artist-in-Residence Laylah Ali.

In Drawings, critically acclaimed artist Laylah Ali (b. 1968, Buffalo, NY) presents meticulously rendered and ornately patterned black and white images of characters culled from an imaginary anthropology. As an extension of her distinctive gouache paintings, Ali's new works in ink and colored pencil engage traditions of identification and classification based on observable physical traits. Deceptively whimsical, Laylah Ali's paintings and drawings offer keenly suggestive analyses of power, oppression, and subjugation -- often in ways that implicate gender and racial identity. While the artist's earlier work (1999 to 2004) delved into the moral turpitude and physical violence of group dynamics and power-plays, Ali has recently shifted focus to the myriad ways in which identity becomes manifest -- through clothing, hairstyle, skin color, physical prowess or limitation.
