The Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco presents a new exhibition, “Resting Our Eyes,” showcasing the works of 20 multi-generational and multidisciplinary Black artists. Curated by Tahirah Rasheed and Autumn Breon, the exceptional show celebrates the freedom of Black women by exploring the nuances of self-adornment, rest, and repercussions of the colonial gaze. Featuring work by Sadie Barnette, Hank Willis Thomas, Genevieve Gaignard, Simone Leigh, Lorna Simpson, and Mickalene Thomas, the inspirational exhibition will open on January 21 with a spoken word performance by artist Porsche Veu. The show’s curators invited Kimberly Fomby, founder of Sucre Couture, to design special statement jewels in honor of the exhibition. Notable works include Carrie Mae Weems’ striking photography, Helena Metaferia’s collaged paper headdresses, Alison Saar’s dynamic sculpture work, and Adana Tillman’s fabric appliques and hand embroidery.
