Senga Nengudi, Dominique Lévy New York

Dominique Lévy New York opens its first exhibition with the artist Senga Nengudi. Organised by Begum Yasar, this selection of recent sculptures and 1970s performance stills inaugurates Dominique Lévy’s The Back Room, the gallery’s new 3rd floor project space. In the 1970s, Nengudi worked in Los Angeles as part of an emerging community of African American artists that engaged with multiple radical political movements underway in the United States and around the globe. Using quotidian materials to create installations, sculptures, performances, and videos, these artists were key participants in the emergence of identity politics
within the visual arts.
