LA TOMORROW

Jeffrey Deitch and Black Rock Senegal (@blackrocksenegal) are thrilled to announce 𝙎𝙀𝙇𝙁-𝘼𝘿𝙍𝙀𝙎𝙎𝙀𝘿, an exhibition of self-portraits by contemporary African artists curated by Kehinde Wiley.For this landmark exhibition, @kehindewiley has invited a selection of contemporary African artists living throughout the world to each produce a self-portrait. Together these portraits will present a new exploration of identity, perception, and self-regard within the global stage through the lens of figuration, exploring notions of perspective, authorship and control within acts of expression that directly address the self. This collection of self-portraits will offer an examination of the myth of the monolithic ‘Africa’ and an exploration of contemporary artists’ visual definitions of what it means to be ‘African’ or ‘of Africa.’

Taste, precisely because it’s an intensely subjective mat­ter we feel compelled to make others agree with, is awash in bad feeling. The buzzkill always has the advantage over the ardent fan, an advantage the literary theorist Gérard Genette called the “authority of the negative.” The question “How can you like this?” is, he noted, always more disturbing than “How can you dislike this?” The quickest way out of this bad feeling is to imitate your naysayer: surrender your taste, learn to despise, or to believe that you despise, what you had previously enjoyed. (More bad feel­ing, of a new variety, ensues.)
