Bitter Nest Exhibition

12:00–18:00 (Reservations required)・Jun 15, 2021–Jul 17, 2021・Perrotin Tokyo Piramide Building, 1F, 6-6-9 Roppongi, Minato-Ku

Bitter Nest gathers a trans-generational group of American artists whose works act social intersection between culture, history and art in the past half-century. Genesis Belanger’s unearthly pop art mirrors his exploration of the psychological dialogue between power and anxiety. Painter Emily Mae Smith, too, grounds her creativity in queer, racial, decolonization and feminist issues. Other artists, including Nina Chanel Abney, Chiffon Thomas and Judy Chicago, seamlessly rewrite the narrative on multilayered homophobia, exclusion and oppression, all of which are prevalent in each of their respective eras. The exhibition’s title Bitter Nest is borrowed from mixed media artist Faith Ringgold’s painted narrative quilt series.
