Event description

Description

Fashion, Lesbian Culture, and Addiction


Libby Black’s work is based on objects and imagery culled from disparate sources like fashion magazines, newspapers, pop culture, historical events, and her personal life. She is interested in having the work chart a path through personal history and a broader cultural context to explore themes of impermanence and identity. The act of drawing, painting, and making sculptures is an attempt to preserve moments that are already gone or to find meaningful connections between arbitrary things.


Black is a painter and sculptural installation artist living in Berkeley. She received a BFA from Cleveland Institute of Art in 1999 and an MFA at California College of the Arts in 2001. Black is represented by Joshua Liner Gallery in New York and Gallery 16 in San Francisco.
