Art Intelligence Global and T&Y Projects are delighted to present “Narration Within the Materials”, a group exhibition of works by11 artists curated by Amani Lewis. The show will be held at T&Y Projects in Tokyo from October 29th – December 17th, 2022.
Featuring works by Susan Alvarez, Stephen Arboite, Shaunté Gates, Julia Gould, Amani Lewis, Kendra Lewis, Murjoni Merriweather, Jo Nanajian, Zoe Schweiger, David ‘Mr.StarCity’ White, and Allison Zuckerman, the exhibition features a group of artists that inspire Amani Lewis through the ways in which they utilize materials to build, enrich, and at times disrupt narration in their works. Employing diverse mediums, the artists’ layered strata of materials contribute to multifaceted histories and perspectives and multi-dimensional social, geopolitical and personal narratives. The exhibition simultaneously reveals the expansive, inclusive and liberating dialogue ignited by creative use of materials and highlights how each artist’s engagement with their materials enables them to move their practice forward.
Amani Lewis (b. 1994) lives and works in Baltimore, MD, and Miami, FL. They received their BFA in 2016 from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Lewis aims to shift the dominant, and often manipulated and simplified, narrative of the relationship between urban life and nature. Lewis showcases the complexity of the community’s stories, and deepens the subject’s perspective of themselves, their power and their relationship to the city. Solo exhibitions of their work have been held at Salon 94, New York; and August Wilson African American Cultural Center, Pittsburgh; and Salon 94, New York. Lewis’ work has been included in group exhibitions at Black Wall Street Gallery, New York; Russ-Sutton Gallery, New York; CFHILL, Stockholm; De Buck Gallery, New York. Currently, Lewis has a solo exhibition on view at LGDR. Paris.
