Tschabalala Self

Inside Out

25 February – 18 June 2023, Kunstmuseum St.Gallen


Tschabalala Self (*1990, Harlem, New York) is deeply engaged with the medium of painting. She paints with various pigments, materials, textiles and threads. Her unique technique includes found, acquired, and hand-­dyed fabrics. With these she creates figures that depict avatars rather than individuals. The artist draws from her personal experiences as a Black American woman. In this context she stages bodies that are often exalted and excluded within her imagined environments.
