STATUS UPDATE: The 2009 Hallwalls Members Exhibition

In the era of ubiquitous social networking and in vague homage to the platform everyone loves to loathe but is loath to stop using, Hallwalls suggests STATUS UPDATE as our title/theme for the 2009 Hallwalls Members Exhibition. So....tell us what you’re up to, what you’re doing, how you feel, what you like (right now), and/or anything else that will bring us all up to speed on You, Version 07/09. You might like to remark on social networking in general, a particular application in specific, the joys/pitfalls of opening yourself up on the world wide internets, riff on some other version of status like status quo....or, AS ALWAYS, you can take the OPTIONAL route, ignore the theme, and just deliver some of your most recent work. No wait, that’s a "status update" too. Huh, first theme that works even when you ignore it.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
