“I believe it is important to depict ordinary people engaging in everyday activities because #blackexcellence can be a burden,” Harlem born artist Tschabalala Self told Juxtapoz back in our Summer 2019 issue. “You should not have to be excellent, famous, or unique to be granted dignity. Everyone’s story is infinitely complex.” That sense of everyone is front and center once again as the artist continues a stellar run at institutions around the US, with the next show opening January 20, 2020 at the Boston ICA.
