Simone Leigh
I ran to the rock to hide my face and the rock cried out no hiding place
February 6 through March 26 

I ran to the rock to hide my face the rock cried out no hiding place reflects the rich influences that inform the ceramic sculpture, video, and installation works created by Simone Leigh, ranging from African art and architecture, historical folk and craft traditions, popular culture, science fiction, ethnography, performance, and contemporary art. In an ongoing consideration of the black female body, the artist explores historical and contemporary practices of representation and the conditions of identity, power, and lived experience for anonymous and regarded women in their many roles as worker, creator, healer, performer, and storyteller.

Opening reception
Friday, February 5 from 6-8 pm.

This exhibition is supported by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
