October 19 - March 14, 2020
A solo exhibition featuring work by Paul Mpagie Sepuya.
“Paul Mpagi Sepuya makes photographs of friends, artists, collaborators, and himself that challenge the history of photography and deconstruct traditional portraiture through layering, fragmentation, mirror imagery, and the perspective of the black, queer gaze. This exhibition—the artist’s first major museum survey—brings together work Sepuya has made across the last thirteen years, offering viewers the opportunity to trace connections across his life and practice.
There Is Enough for Everyone will present a night of performances titled, “Everyone at Blaffer” at Blaffer Contemporary Arts Museum featuring “Everyone”; a general collective of LGBTQIA, black, brown, minority artists and non-minority artists. “Everyone at Blaffer” will follow the opening reception for Paul Sepuya and Jaqueline Nova.”
