• Nina Chanel Abney: Big Butch Synergy

    May 21, 2023 – June 11, 2023

About the Event:

For this exhibition, she debuts a new body of work presented in two shows, one at ICA Miami, Big Butch Energy, and one at moCa Cleveland, Big Butch Synergy. The series explores and celebrates expressions of Black masculine women and those who resist hetero- or cis-normative gender roles. In moCa’s multi-space presentation, Abney will create a site-responsive monumental artwork on the museum’s ground floor and a new series of gallery-installed large-scale paintings that all teem with her bold, pictorial language and characteristically impactful expressions. Lead support for Nina Chanel Abney: Big Butch Synergy is provided by Joanne Cohen & Morris Wheeler. Additional support provided by The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation.
