Event description

Description

Leila Weefur lives and works in Oakland, CA.

Weefur received her MFA from Mills College in 2016. With a multidisciplinary practice, Weefur tackles the complexities of phenomenological Blackness through video, installation, printmaking, and lecture-performances. Using materials and visual gestures to access the tactile memory, she explores the abject, the sensual and the nuance found in the social interactions and language with which our bodies have to negotiate space.

She is a recipient of the Hung Liu award, the Murphy & Cadogan award, and recently completed an artist fellowship at Kala Art Institute. Weefur has exhibited her work in local and national galleries including Southern Exposure and SOMArts Gallery in San Francisco, Betti Ono in Oakland, BAMPFA and Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, New York.

She is the Audio/Video, Editor In Chief at Art Practical and the co-director of The Black Aesthetic.
