An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until Sunday, Dec 4, 2022
Currently on view, Jamilah Sabur: The Harvesters
For The Harvesters, Sabur weaves a series of interconnected works into an exhibition that confronts the labor and economies of extraction. Sabur examines climate change, particularly long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns, as an expression of geological rhythms. Sabur uses the theme of harvesting as double entendre to connect with her ongoing interest in mining and mineral extraction, especially in the context of post-colonial states and their conception of boundaries.
