Tschabalala Self

Tschabalala Self's book 'Bodega Run' launches at Swiss Institute

We’re pleased to share Tschabalala Self's ‘Bodega Run,’ a new publication designed by Pacific. The book catalogs Self’s years-long visual exploration of the social, political and economic implications of New York bodegas – a mainstay, and emblem of diaspora, in many of Manhattan's Black and Latino neighborhoods. ‘Bodega Run’ is a 248-page, clothbound catalogue raisonné of the eponymous series, including installation images and project-expanding texts. A zine insert with photographs of the New York bodegas that inspired the series accompanies the book. ‘Bodega Run’ is the final look at a monumental project by one of the most exciting young artists working today.

To conclude her exploration, Self has created a collection of new wall-mounted sculptural reliefs and prints inspired by the products bodegas sell. These works will be presented to the public by Pilar Corrias and Galerie Eva Pressenhuber for three days at the Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art, New York. An opening and book launch will take place at Swiss Institute on Thursday, January 11, 6 – 8 pm.
