Laylah Ali: Types

December 3, 2004 - February 27, 2005

Known for her cartoon-like characters engaged in ambiguous activities, Laylah Ali’s work implies narratives that address a wide variety of political and social concerns. Organized on the occasion of the exhibition, Laylah Ali: Paintings and Drawings, this book contains reproductions from the artist’s Types series. These new drawings focus on portraits of individuals that compress various traits to create new character “types.” This small, 36 page book features new black and white and color drawings. This is the first time Ali’s drawings have been published. Organized by Andrea Green, Curatorial Assistant, the Contemporary.
