Senga Nengudi: Topologies

2021 | USA | 11:14

Situated at the intersection of sculpture and performance, Senga Nengudi’s provocative works reimagine the possibilities for abstract art through an exploration of both the Black female body and the collective practices of community and ritual. A leader of the 1970s Black American avant-garde, Nengudi has built a powerful and innovative body of work rooted in her commitment to collaboration. Featuring sculptures made from everyday materials like pantyhose, water, and air conditioning units, and incorporating archival documentation, video, and sound, the exhibition traces the arc of the artist’s career over the last five decades, celebrating Nengudi as a pioneering artist of our time. – The Philadelphia Museum of Art
