Christina Quarles on ‘Come In From An Endless Place’ in Menorca (2023)

Video (5:41): Christina Quarles discusses her exhibition in Menorca (Spain). The newly-created paintings and drawings in Come In From An Endless Place explore the cyclical nature of escape, return and ongoingness. Video by Hauser & Wirth (2023).

Christina Quarles says: ‘As a Queer, cis-woman, born to a black father and a white mother, I engage with the world from a position that is multiply situated. My project is informed by my daily experience with ambiguity and seeks to dismantle assumptions of our fixed subjectivity through images that challenge the viewer to contend with the disorganized body in a state of excess.’
