Warith Taha creates autobiographical work that addresses his Black queer relationship to time, space and material.

Tara Warith

Taha's practice draws from a diverse field of research ranging from abstraction to self-portraiture, family photos to found domestic objects, fantasy to autobiography. These points of interest become anchors in his ongoing exploration of Black queer bodily visibility and absence. Central to Taha's work is an imaging into how painting as a practice might be used as a tool of resistance against historical erasure and inaccuracy. The artist received his MFA from Tyler School of Art and Architecture in Philadelphia. Taha is the 2020 awardee of Headland Center for the Arts Tournesol Award and a 2021 NXTHVN Visual Art Fellow. In 2022, Taha was a visiting artist at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. 

Opening Reception: 5:30–7 p.m.; Artist Talk at 6 p.m.
Exbhibition: Oct. 11–Nov. 4.
