Make Room

Tschabalala Self - Make Room
First monograph of the African-American artist, renowned for her representations of black femininity, whose spectacular pop patchworks deconstruct and recompose the everyday feminine/masculine relationship in its domestic dimension: an overview of Tschabalala Self's production, with seven essays and an interview.
Published on the occasion of Tschabalala Self's exhibitions "Make Room" at Le Consortium, Dijon, in 2022-2023, and "Inside Out" at Kunstmuseum St.Gallen in 2023.
Tschabalala Self (born 1990 in Harlem, lives and works between New York and New Haven) is an artist who builds a singular style from the syncretic use of both painting and printmaking to explore ideas about the Black body. She constructs depictions of predominantly female bodies using a combination of sewn, printed, and painted materials, traversing different artistic and craft traditions. The formal and conceptual aspects of Self's work seek to expand her critical inquiry into selfhood and human flourishing. 
Edited by Franck Gautherot, Seungduk Kim, Tschabalala Self.
