Presented at:
Hallwalls

Screening of THE THUNDER: THE PERFECT MIND (Sacred Cow Productions/ Tom Richards and Marta).

Although unintentional, the poem can sum up a vibrant portrait of the spirit of New Orleans, a dichotomy inside us all.

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.
